CHEFSGIVING 2020 Supports First Responders

Jason and Michelle Glover, Chef Jim Modesitt, and TV host Liam Mayclem have deep roots in the Northern California community and each leapt into action when the severe devastation from the recent wildfires became evident. Each an avid cook and/or involved in restaurant-related charities and organizations, they created ChefsGiving 2020, a virtual video cookbook curated with recipes from some of the top chefs and mixologists around the country. The videos are intimate cooking lessons primarily filmed in chefs’ and bartenders’ home kitchens.

Contributions to ChefsGiving 2020 will support First Responders in our communities and those battling the wildfires of 2020, supporting two organizations, the Tiny Pine Foundation, and the Gary Sinise Foundation. ChefsGiving 2020 is a socially-distanced way for family and friends to experience new flavors and dishes this holiday season. ChefsGiving 2020 is also the perfect gift to give others.

Participants include:

● Chef Jacques Pépin

● Chef Marcus Samuelsson

● Mixologist Phil Wills

● Chef Ryan Scott

● Chef Dominique Crenn

● Chef Tanya Holland

● “The Red Rocker” Sammy Hagar

● Chef Andrew Zimmern

Partnering with Williams Sonoma, the ChefsGiving 2020 collection is available here throughout the holidays. Sneak peeks of the videos are also teased on Instagram and Facebook.

About the Gary Sinise Foundation

The Gary Sinise Foundation was established under the philanthropic direction of actor Gary Sinise, an advocate of nearly 40 years of the nation’s defenders. The Foundation’s mission is to serve the nation by honoring defenders, veterans, first responders, their families, and those in need. Programs are designed to entertain, educate, inspire, strengthen and build communities, and serve America’s heroes and their loved ones 365 days a year.

About the Tiny Pine Foundation

The Tiny Pine Foundation materialized out of the great need for affordable, safe housing for those impacted and devastated by the wildfires in the Western US. CEO Alyssa Nolan-Cain has since successfully built more than 20 Tiny Homes along with hundreds of volunteers, secured grants and donations, and led countless wildfire relief events. The Tiny Pine Foundation has future plans to build Tiny Home Villages in multiple locations and has already extended its relief efforts to Oregon. Through the support of ChefsGiving 2020, The Tiny Pine Foundation will be able to broaden its reach, house additional fire survivors including Wildfire First Responders (each tiny home costs $7,000 to build), and provide Community Outreach/Training so other communities across the country can learn how to support their communities and First Responders with similar relief.
