On July 8th at 8 p.m. EDT, Chair the Love is transforming its virtual event series into a quarterly model. Cuisine for the Cause is a delightful online cooking class, featuring celebrity chefs from across the country. The July event will feature Chef Ben Ford, a Los Angeles chef who specializes in holistic and homegrown cooking. All donations, sponsorships, and event registrations will go towards Chair the Love’s work of giving the gift of mobility. Cuisine for the Cause is an event that grew out of the challenges of fundraising in 2020. With no chance of hosting in-person events, Chair the Love created an online event that allowed for the same sense of communal fun, while ensuring attendees’ safety. With the assistance of chefs like Norman Van Aken and Mexican star Alejandro Espinosa, hundreds of wheelchairs have been purchased and distributed to local school systems and individuals in Jamaica, Bahamas, Costa Rica, and Mexico. In the words of founder Glen Mather, “Cuisine for the Cause is both fun and effective because you get to spend an evening with your friends, you get to create a dish you never could’ve made on your own, and it supports one of the most direct needs that we see today: the need for mobility!” As a licensed nonprofit, Chair the Love has provided over 6,000 wheelchairs to those in need worldwide, built wheelchair ramps, and provided local Central Florida schools with mobility devices for their clinics. They work locally and globally to alleviate the need for wheelchairs on every continent. They plan to raise the funds through this virtual cooking class to produce and ship an entire container of wheelchairs (280) within the next 6 months.
