Williams Sonoma and 13 celebrities have teamed up to end childhood hunger with spatulas


Williams Sonoma and No Kid Hungry have teamed up again for their fifth annual campaign to end childhood hunger with the help of 13 celebs and some must have spatulas.

For the fifth year in a row, Williams Sonoma is working with No Kid Hungry in an effort to end childhood hunger. With a goal of $2.5 million, the retailer plans to help children get up to 25 million meals.

As part of their fundraising efforts, Williams Sonoma has partnered with 13 celebrities, TV personalities, and chefs to create limited edition spatulas with individual designs. Celebrities taking part in this year’s fundraiser include Vanessa Hudgens, Lisa Vanderpump, Andy Cohen, and Guy Fieri among others.

In a press release from the company, they also announced that they will even be offering mugs featuring some of the limited edition designs from previous campaigns. The mugs will feature some of the more popular designs from previous celebrities who took part in earlier fundraisers with Williams Sonoma and No Kid Hungry.

According to the president of the company, Ryan Ross, “We are committed to helping No Kid Hungry fight childhood hunger in the U.S. by raising money and awareness.” As part of that effort, the company has already raised over $8 million for the charity and with this new goal, they hope to break the $10 million mark.

Andy Cohen, who is one of the celebrities taking part in this year’s fundraiser, explained his reasoning for taking part in designing a special spatula for Williams Sonoma and No Kid Hungry. According to Cohen, “As a new dad, it’s important to me more than ever to make sure all kids get the food they need to grow up healthy and strong.”

Each of the limited edition spatulas can be snagged for $14.95, both online and at local Williams Sonoma stores. With the fundraiser kicking off on August 12, now is the perfect time to help children get the meals they need for a healthy childhood. And not only that, but you can grab a spatula that truly feels like a one-of-a-kind piece of art in your kitchen.

While the spatulas will go on sale starting on the 12th, the celebrities who took part in designing this year’s batch of limited edition tools will be taking to social media starting on August 15 to share the news. This social media push will be part of a “spatdown” competition in an effort for each celebrity to sell the most of their individual designs. Whichever celebrity wins the “spatdown” will have a donation of $5,000 from Williams Sonoma donated to No Kid Hungry on their behalf.

No matter which celebrity ends up selling the most of their designs, this is one fundraiser we can all get behind. Not only do we love all 13 of the spatulas that are being offered, but this is a truly worthy cause.

On top of the celebrity designed spatulas being sold, Williams Sonoma will also be hosting cooking classes in local stores for children to take part in on three separate dates, with proceeds going to No Kid Hungry. On August 24, stores will celebrate National Waffle Day with junior chefs between the ages of 8 to 13. Then on September 7, stores will be hosting a Pizza Party for their junior chefs. The final class will be held on September 14, as the young chefs get a special lesson about knife skills.
