Proceeds From These Adorable Spatulas and Mugs Go Directly Towards Helping End Childhood Hunger
The COVID-19 pandemic has affected millions of Americans in some way or another. One of the most impacted groups is children with food insecurity (or those who live in households who can't provide enough food for everyone to live a healthy life). No Kid Hungry, a national campaign working to feed children affected by childhood hunger, estimates that 22 million children rely on free or reduced-price lunches at school every day. And now that schools are closed due to the novel coronavirus, No Kid Hungry says that 25% of children could face hunger this year.
In partnership with No Kid Hungry, Williams Sonoma has created a line of adorable, celebrity-designed spatulas and mugs with 30% of the retail price going to the campaign. Chefs and celebrities like Ina Garten, Guy Fieri, José Andrés, Kristen Bell, Trisha Yearwood and Al Roker contributed to the collection.
When thinking of his spatula design, Andrés wanted something that represented creativity and joy. He says, "In the kitchen and in life, you don't always have to follow the recipe—sometimes, your passion and the willingness to be creative is all you need." His colorful spatula would be a bright addition to any kitchen ($12, currently on sale from $15, Williams Sonoma).
Some of our favorite spatulas from the collection include Andy Cohen's colorful striped spatula, which was inspired by his son, and Gaby Dalkin's cute avocado-themed design ($12 each, currently on sale from $15, Williams Sonoma). And of course, we can't forget Ina Garten (AKA the queen of quarantine cooking) who added an inspiring message to hers ($12, currently on sale from $15, Williams Sonoma).
