THE GIVING KITCHEN
The Giving Kitchen provides emergency grants to people in the restaurant industry facing personal hardship. To help ensure its own sustainability, The Giving Kitchen has a unique relationship with a for-profit subsidiary. That subsidiary is Staplehouse, a casual fine-dining restaurant located in Atlanta’s Old Fourth Ward. Staplehouse has received much media attention for both the charity work that they do, and the high-quality and innovation of the food they serve. 100% of Staplehouse’s net profits are channeled back to the Giving Kitchen, to create an ongoing stream of support.
