Time to add to those kitchen essentials. Williams Sonoma Tools for Change is back for the seventh year. Raising funds and awareness for No Kid Hungry, the annual program features 10 celebrities, chefs and influencers in this year’s offering. Ready to get into the kitchen and start cooking?

For many home cooks, they cannot have too many spatulas. One of the most versatile kitchen essentials, the reality is that a spatula is more than just a workhorse. It is a way to express some personality in the kitchen.

With the annual Williams Sonoma Tools for Change, that new spatula is a way to help kids who are food insecure. Purchasing one the $14.95 spatulas can “provide up to 40 meals for kids in need.”

Who created a Williams Sonoma Tools for Change spatula this year?

The chefs, celebrities and influencers participating in this year’s include Bobby Flay, Hilary Duff, Tamron Hall, Tabitha Brown, Gaby Dalkin, Molly Yeh and Kevin Curry.

All the participants are excited to bring their designs to the program. Drawing inspiration from their lives, each spatula is unique and tells a story.

Bobby Flay said, “I’m thrilled to be part of Williams Sonoma’s creative spatula line-up again, and I couldn’t help but find inspiration for this spatula design from my cat, Nacho Flay. Nacho founded his own cat food company this year called ‘Made By Nacho’ and is doing his part to be sure his fellow felines across the US are well fed. He’d be honored to know he has a part in contributing to No Kid Hungry’s amazing efforts to feed kids in need across the US too. Thanks so much for including us.”

For Molly Yeh, her design focuses on a family tradition. Yeh said, “Some of my favorite things to do with my daughter Bernie is pick apples, bake with apples, sing about apples, and of course eat apples! As a mom it is so important to me that Bernie has access to delicious and nutritious food and it is my hope that through this partnership with No Kid Hungry, every child can have access to good healthy food.”

In many ways, all the participants appreciate the connection that food plays in nourishing not just the body but has a greater impact. As Tabitha Brown said, “Children are our future so it is our responsibility to keep their belly’s and souls fed.”

Even Tamaron Hall goes on to explain, “Food is essential; it brings people together and the best memories are made around tables of food. But that’s not the reality for millions of kids. I know what it’s like to grow up in a family struggling to make ends meet, and it’s heartbreaking to know that’s what so many families are going through right now. That’s why I’m proud to support No Kid Hungry and hope with my spatula you’ll join me in building a brighter future for our nation’s kids. Just one hungry child is one too many.”

In addition to the spatulas, Williams Sonoma has expanded into the No Kid Hungry offerings to include tea towels that feature the spatula designs. Now the whole kitchen can coordinate in those whimsical looks and help a worthy cause in the process.

The Williams Sonoma Tools for Change are available at stores and online starting today. They are available while supplies last.
