The Giving Kitchen’s mission is to provide crisis grants to members of Atlanta’s restaurant community facing unanticipated hardship.
The Giving Kitchen (TGK) is a nonprofit charity based in Atlanta, GA inspired by an overwhelming expression of support from the hospitality industry when Atlanta chef Ryan Hidinger was diagnosed with last stage cancer in December 2012. From helping with the cost of living expenses to funeral arrangements, TGK provides crisis grants to members of the restaurant community, residing in the metropolitan Atlanta region, facing unanticipated hardship. Funding for the sustainability of TGK comes from a variety of sources including direct beneficiary events, personal donations and profits from a one-of-a-kind platform generated by Staplehouse Restaurant.
