Chefs For Humanity is committed to promoting nutrition education, hunger relief and emergency and humanitarian aid to reduce hunger worldwide.

CFH Program Areas

Hunger Relief

There are nearly one billion hungry people in the world---more than the combined populations of USA, Canada and the European Union. 98% of the world’s hungry live in developing countries with the least resources to tackle this challenging problem.  

Nutrition Education

Helping children make healthy food choices is an essential ingredient for instilling good habits to last a lifetime. Parents and caregivers can teach good nutrition by involving kids in making healthy, nutritious snacks and meals.

Disaster Response

Floods, famine, hurricanes and war affect all of us, whether at home or overseas. Events like Hurricane Katrina in New Orleans and the earthquakes in Haiti brought devastation to many. Helping to ensure immediate and reliable access to water, food and nutrition is one way Chefs for Humanity provides help to others in times of great need.

CFH Brings Clean Cook Stoves and Funds Briquette Enterprises in Haiti

Chefs for Humanity responded to the Haiti earthquakes by raising awareness and support for the World Food Programme (WFP). CFH funding was used to purchase clean cookstoves for WFP’s school meals programs in Haiti, which benefits thousands of children with nutritious meals, as well as the women cooking in the schools who now breathe cleaner air and cook on safer fuel efficient stoves--without the risk and time associated with searching for firewood and fuel.  CFH is also funding the establishment of micro-enterprises to train Haitians to produce the briquettes used to fuel the stoves, which are made from recycled paper and cardboard, thereby reducing the reliance on charcoal.  These micro-enterprises have the dual benefit of creating jobs and sustainable businesses while addressing environmental and safety concerns for the country.

Cat Cora Visits Haiti

This April, Cat Cora and Chefs for Humanity visited Haiti again. We witnessed inspiring accomplishments and recognized the continued challenges of a nation trying to rebuild. We were lucky to spend time with organizations having huge impact there, including the Haitian American Caucus, the Bureau de Nutrition et Developpment (BND) along with Partners in Health and the World Food Program, all of which are making strides towards sustainable agriculture, access to quality health care, food security, improved nutrition and women's empowerment. Most importantly, we saw first hand the strides being made by the Haitian people themselves, who with unparalleled resilience and fortitude, are rebuilding their country, one day at a time.

Cat Cora Visits Ethiopia with Save the Children

Chef Cat Cora meets 6-year-old Mahlet at a health post in Bishofutu, Ethiopia. Mothers bring their children for vaccinations and treatment for diarrhea, malnutrition, malaria, and HIV/AIDS. Children are weighed and measured to determine whether they are developing properly or if they are malnourished. Mothers are counseled on the important role breastfeeding plays in providing essential nourishment to their babies. See more video about Cat's trip.
