CLEVELAND, Ohio (WOIO) - More and more chefs and restaurants are using their platforms for social change.
Significant events, like Hurricanes Maria and Dorian, or the suicide of Anthony Bourdain, have prompted many to act.
Sawyer previously joined the Taste Buds to shed light on the mental health and addiction struggles in restaurants and kitchens shortly after Chef Bourdain took his own life.
Also on the show, we’ll talk about the efforts of Chef Jose Andreas’ World Central Kitchen. The organization travels into areas hit by natural disasters and feeds the masses. He’s currently helping those affected by Hurricane Dorian.
Andreas was nominated for a Nobel Peace Prize for his work in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria.
No Kid Hungry is another organization that many chefs have gotten involved with, in an effort to end childhood hunger.
Tune in to Taste Buds this and every Tuesday morning at 10 a.m. You can stream it through our Facebook Live broadcast, the 19 News app or website. The show is also available through Roku and Amazon Fire TV.
Co-host Dave Kocab is the Chef de Cuisine at The Black Pig in Ohio City. Matt Mytro is the Chef/Partner at Flour in Moreland Hills.
