Millions of people love to get in the kitchen and spend time cooking. It’s all about using their skills, creativity, and know-how to combine simple ingredients into a masterpiece that others can enjoy. This holiday season, those who want the perfect gift for someone who cooks need look no further than the new apron inspired by celebrity chef Amanda Freitag. Not only will they look great in the apron, but purchasing one also feeds 100 meals to those in need worldwide.
“When you give one of our aprons as a gift to the foodies your life, you are giving 100 people a gift of a meal,” explains Seema Sanghavi, founder of Cooks Who Feed. “It doesn’t get any better than that. It’s the best gift when you think of the impact and reach that the purchase has.”
The new apron is inspired by and created by celebrity chef Amanda Freita, a cookbook author best known for her work on the Food Network. In addition to the 100 meals give-back, for every Amanda Freitag apron sold, a $10 donation will be given to God’s Love We Deliver, a charity providing medically tailored meals to New Yorkers. The apron sells for $72, but those who sign up for the company emails can get 10% off. The burgundy-colored apron is made from 100% organic cotton and has white off-white straps with an adjustable neck strap.
“I’m so honored to make this apron with Cooks Who Feed. I helped design it, it says ‘Food is Love’ on it, and it gives back to God’s Love We Deliver,” explains Chef Amanda Freitag. “It’s really cool. To give a gift that gives back is honestly my favorite thing to do.”
With every apron sold through Cooks Who Feed, 100 meals are given out to those in need. Plus, the aprons are handmade using fair trade practices. Marginalized women in India make the aprons, providing them a safe way to earn a living wage. To date, the company have provided over 1.6 million meals worldwide and tens of thousands of fair trade work hours to marginalized women.
“This one gift touches so many lives that people can’t help but love it beyond being able to look great cooking a meal,” added Sanghavi. “From the people who make it to those who benefit from the much-needed meals, it’s a win-win situation for everyone. We are proud to be at the forefront of helping to make a real positive difference in the world.”
The Cooks Who Feed apron collection includes ones for adults and children. Many of the designs are in collaboration with well-known chefs and food charities, including Chef Art Smith, Chef Christine Cushing, and World Central Kitchen. Cooks Who Feed also offers handloom linen napkins and printed tea towels, each providing 50 meals to those in need.
