The Story Behind Cooks Who Feed

Founder Seema’s love for cooking and sharing meals inspired the creation of Cooks Who Feed. After visiting an NGO in India that provided training and fair work to marginalized women, Seema felt compelled to help more women have the same opportunity. In 2018, she learned about the staggering amount of food waste and realized the potential to make a difference. Seema connected the dots, and the idea for Cooks Who Feed was born, using aprons—the uniform of a cook—to fight hunger. By working directly with the NGO she visited, Cooks Who Feed produces their aprons ethically, aiming to empower foodies everywhere to fight hunger in the most socially responsible way possible.
