Through the end of June, chef Gavin Kaysen’s restaurant group, Soigné Hospitality, is donating 20% of proceeds from Bellecour and Spoon and Stable takeout to local organization Appetite for Change. This Twin Cities nonprofit uses food as a tool to build health, wealth and social change in North Minneapolis. Most recently, in response to the coronavirus outbreak and in partnership with Minnesota Central Kitchen, Appetite for Change has helped make and deliver 54,000+ meals across our community.
“I had the pleasure of serving on Appetite for Change’s board for about three years and have come to know that team very well,” Kaysen explains. “I jump at any chance I have to give back to them. They were early partners of ours during the Synergy Series, and this won’t be the last time we work with them. They are a community-based nonprofit focused on using food as a tool for health, wealth and social change. We believe in the same things.”
