Williams Sonoma has teamed up with No Kid Hungry in their mission to end childhood hunger in America. Using proven, practical solutions, No Kid Hungry is ending childhood hunger by ensuring that kids start the day with a nutritious breakfast and families learn the skills they need to shop and cook on a budget.
More than 13 million kids—roughly one in six children in America—don’t get the food they need every day, and three out of four teachers say their students regularly come to school hungry. Statistics show that kids who eat school breakfast and lunch miss less school, get better grades, and are more likely to graduate from high school.
Williams Sonoma has partnered with the campaign to help connect kids in need to nutritious food. In the last five years, Williams Sonoma has raised more than $3.3 million for No Kid Hungry, and this year, they've set a company-wide goal to raise $2 million more (20 million meals) in 2017 to help end childhood hunger. You can join them by making a donation at the cash registers of all Williams Sonoma stores, donating online, purchasing one of their products in stores or online, or attending one of the in-store events to benefit No Kid Hungry.
One of the products available for purchase is a spatula - but not just any ordinary spatula. Each year, Williams Sonoma has celebrities design spatulas to help benefit No Kid Hungry. This year, Mississippi native Faith Hill is one of the designers.
"My spatula was inspired by my parents' garden that we had growing up and knowing how fortunate we were to be able to grow a lot of our food in our backyard," Hill said. "Join me in supporting Williams Sonoma's No Kid Hungry campaign this year. Let's end childhood hunger!"
Williams Sonoma will donate 30 percent of the retail price from each spatula purchased to No Kid Hungry, plus an additional $5,000 to the chef whose design sells out first. Pick your team by supporting your favorite spatula design—or collect them all! You can purchase Faith Hill's spatula and browse the collection here. Learn more about why these designers are contributing to the cause, and follow along on social media with @williamssonoma and the hashtag #WSNoKidHungry to show us your spat and see who wins this year’s "spatdown."
During the months of August of September, Williams Sonoma stores will also be hosting a number of in-store events to benefit No Kid Hungry. For more information, a list of events, and ways to donate, learn more here.
