PARIS — World Chefs Without Borders (WCWB) announced that on the 10th Anniversary of Cyclone Nargis, 100 Chefs from the World Association of Chefs Societies (WorldChefs) will travel to Myanmar at their own expense to raise funds for those in need.
Chefs will unite with the Myanmar Chefs Association (myanmarchefs.com) com and cook for zero hunger — using their skills and dedication to raise awareness of those lacking sufficient resources for their communities and families.
“Hunger should not be tolerated and the basic necessities of life must be provided to those who need our help,” says Willment Leong, WCWB chairman. “We will join together in Myanmar for we are chefs, we have no borders.”
Myanmar events will take place from June 9 to 13, 2018 and will include a Ground Cook-off preparing 5,000 meals, a Boat Cook-off preparing 5,000 Meals, assembling 10,000 relief packs and a VIP Gala Dinner for 200 guests. All funds raised will go towards the Myanmar humanity aid and relief initiative.
