Chefsgiving Goes City-Wide!
Each year, Chicago chef and restaurateur Bill Kim invites a team of fellow chefs to come together and prepare a free Thanksgiving meal at Inspiration Kitchens for residents of the West Side and beyond who are struggling with poverty and homelessness.
This year, Chefsgiving is going to be bigger than ever before. Chefs from across Chicago have joined us to prepare meals for nearby shelters, helping provide a delicious Thanksgiving meal to those in need. Look for a map of participating chefs and restaurants below!
“The idea for Chefsgiving sprang from wanting to directly connect with the communities that these types of culinary events seek to give back to but rarely include and involve. By gathering together at the table, I know we can gain a better understanding of how we can best support our neighborhoods in need.”
