Ina Garten, Scarlett Johansson, and Other Celebrities Are Designing Spatulas to Fight Childhood Hunger
For the last eight years, Williams Sonoma has teamed up with non-profit organization Share Our Strength to help end youth hunger in America. The campaign is called "No Kid Hungry," and Williams Sonoma's signature fundraising spatulas are back again to raise money and awareness for the cause. Celebrities such as Ina Garten, Giada de Laurentiis, and Food Network's Duff Goldman are among those who have released designs for this year's campaign.
Each spatula retails for $13.95, and 30 percent of proceeds head directly to the No Kid Hungry campaign. In addition to the cooking stars involved, this year's designs include contributions from a hodgepodge of celebrities and social influencers such as Scarlett Johansson, Gwen Stefani, Kevin Bacon, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Carson Daly, Zac Posen, and Laila Ali.
The spatulas are all distinct and reflect the star’s personality behind it—Garten's familiar signature can be found on her spatula, while Goldman's illustration of a cupcake captures his passion for baking.
Williams Sonoma aims to raise $2.5 million this year for No Kid Hungry, which will help feed 25 million meals to children in need.
“Since we’ve started working with No Kid Hungry we have seen the statistics change for the better from 1 in 5 children in the U.S. facing hunger to 1 in 6,” said Janet Hayes, president of Williams Sonoma, in an official press release. “We are grateful to our customers, colleagues and corporate partners whose generosity has already helped raise more than $5.5 million and provided more than 55 million meals to help children in need across the country.”
These new spatulas are available now in stores and online, and they'll remain on shelves until they've sold out. The celebrity with the most popular design—the one that sells the most spatulas—will have an extra $5,000 donated to No Kid Hungry on their behalf. Which means you can not only donate to a wonderful cause, but you can help your favorite foodie win, too!
Who are we rooting for? Ina, of course.
