We support the following causes because...
Food insecurity in America is growing at a rapid pace. COVID-19 is accelerating the problem. Feeding America is the nation’s largest hunger-relief organization, serving more than 40 million Americans annually through its network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs, with a presence in every community in the United States.
Its COVID-19 Response Fund was launched to help enable member food banks to secure the resources they need to continue operations, while modifying their distribution methods in accordance with health and safety regulations during this time of highly increased demand.
It is working with government leaders to ensure that waivers and flexibility are allowed around regulations; partnering with school districts and local governments to get food to kids in need; building an inventory of emergency food boxes and providing grants to local food banks.
We have an opportunity to come together to support our neighbors in this critical time of need. World Central Kitchen is led by world-renowned chef and humanitarian, José Andrés, and has been at the forefront of urgently providing meals to people in need in the wake of disasters around the world.
WCK began its COVID-19 relief efforts by distributing fresh meals to cruise- ship passengers under quarantine, and has since expanded its mission to feed vulnerable communities through mobile distributions, restaurant partners, and others.
It has begun meal distribution in New York, Newark, Miami, Los Angeles, Oakland, New Orleans, Little Rock, and Washington, D.C.; and is planning to expand its operations in the coming week. Currently, it is serving 100,000 fresh meals daily, and is ramping up.
The National Tropical Botanical Garden is a non-profit organization close to our hearts. Introduced to us by legendary eyewear designer Kenny Schwartz, co-founder of Oliver Peoples, the NTGB is dedicated to the mission of saving tropical plants and saving people.
More than 80% of the world’s hungry live in tropical and subtropical regions. Facing soaring food, fuel, and fertilizer costs, farmers in the tropics need sustainable, low-input, nutritious crops. Many countries, with a total population of over 2 billion people, have ecological conditions suitable for cultivating breadfruit.
The Breadfruit Institute at the National Tropical Botanical Garden, Hawai’i, is engaged in an initiative to respond to critical global food security issues by expanding plantings of good quality breadfruit varieties in tropical regions.
The Institute is a member of the Alliance to End Hunger, a coalition of 90 corporations, non-profit organizations, universities, individuals, and religious groups, working together to create real change for hungry people. Since the launch of the Global Hunger Initiative in 2009, more than 100,000 breadfruit trees have been sent to 44 countries.

The Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was born from one family’s passion for Kenya and its wilderness, the Sheldrick Wildlife Trust was established more than 40 years ago and is best known for its Orphans' Project, the first and most successful elephant orphan rescue and rehabilitation program in the world.
The Sheldrick Trust is a pioneering conservation organisation, dedicated to the protection of wildlife and the preservation of habitats in East Africa. Working across Kenya, their projects include anti-poaching, safe guarding the natural environment, enhancing community awareness, addressing animal welfare issues, providing veterinary assistance to animals in need, rescuing and hand rearing elephant and rhino orphans, along with other species that can ultimately enjoy a quality of life in wild terms when grown.
