Vision

Mission:  The mission of Chefs to End Hunger is to provide meals to the hungry by redistributing the excess prepared food that would normally go to waste in hotels, restaurants, and other foodservice operations to local food agencies to serve the meals.

Chefs to End Hunger is about empowering chefs to easily and efficiently use the resources already at their disposal and repurpose food currently going to waste to join in the fight to end hunger and make a real cumulative impact daily.

Chefs to End Hunger relies on 100% donation of supplies (i.e. boxes, labels), meals, and transportation from participants and will one day be implemented nationwide.

The Program Pilot:  LA & SF Specialty is in an optimal position to logistically coordinate and execute the redistribution of meals from hotel, restaurant, and other foodservice customers to local food agencies to serve meals.  The company already has trucks delivering to over 2,000 locations daily and will drop off supplies of boxes and foil sheet pans. Full boxes containing three sheet pans will be picked up from customers daily upon regularly scheduled product delivery without putting more trucks on the road.

Chefs at all hotels, restaurants, and other foodservice operations can participate and do their part to feed the hungry simply by packing and labeling the requisite Chefs to End Hunger boxes, storing them in their coolers, and handing over full boxes to their LA & SF Specialty driver during their regularly scheduled delivery drop-off.  Chefs can turn their food waste into charitable donation AND provide meals to the hungry.  Everybody gains from the program.

Chefs to End Hunger Logo:  Use of the Chefs to End Hunger logo creates awareness of the program and demonstrates solidarity among chefs in the cause to feed the hungry.
