For the 7th year in a row, Chicago chef and restauranteur 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 who are struggling with poverty, homelessness, and food insecurity.
2022 marks the second year that Chefsgiving will be expanding city-wide. This year, we’re hoping to build on the sense of community and have our guests dine with us at multiple locations throughout Chicago. With the help of DoorDash, Kinship Company, and many incredible chefs we hope to provide meals for over 1,000 people in need this Thanksgiving
“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.”
