CFH Welcomes Our Global Culinary Ambassadors

Those who share a passion – and even a profession – in the culinary world have a unique and intuitive understanding of the importance of healthy ingredients and good nutrition. Throughout our travels, we have found that people who have a passion for food and its preparation are likely to be passionate about ending hunger and malnutrition and nourishing their communities.

Chefs for Humanity’s mission is to galvanize chefs and culinary enthusiasts around this shared passion to end hunger and malnutrition for the world’s children. We are proud to stand in partnership with these dedicated humanitarians and culinary talents, each of whom brings special gifts and shared understanding that together, we can make a meaningful difference. We celebrate these Chefs for Humanity and are proud to have them as our Global Culinary Ambassadors.
