Best show of support in the restaurant community: The Giving Kitchen

Staff Pick

Our local restaurant community's willingness to collaborate has been vital to the growing national prominence of Atlanta's dining scene. The most remarkable example of the community's strength, spirit, and vision in the last year has been the Giving Kitchen. What started as a rally around Staplehouse chef Ryan Hidinger after he was diagnosed with cancer has evolved into a nonprofit dedicated to supporting those in the hospitality industry like Hidinger who are experiencing hardships. Over the last year, chefs throughout the city have hosted (and continue to host) dinners and events that benefit the Giving Kitchen. This powerful display of public togetherness has sparked a passionate discourse in Atlanta, not only on the value of community, but on the value of dining together and the healing role that food can play in our lives. As Hidinger told CL, "I've become a different person through the experience of cancer, but even more so through the sheer outpouring of support and emotion from the Atlanta restaurant community."
