Have you heard about our “No Kid Hungry” spatula campaign yet?
It’s perhaps one of the sweetest ways to start tackling the terrible problem of childhood hunger in America. No child should ever have to go hungry. In this campaign, we partnered with ten celebrities, including famous cooks, asking for their spatula designs. Since we’re donating 30% of the sales to No Kid Hungry, buying just one of these spatulas can help provide 40 healthy meals to a child in need.
The statistics are sobering. More than 13 million kids—that’s roughly one in six children in America—don’t get the food they need every day. Three out of four teachers say their students regularly come to school hungry. Statistics show that kids who eat school breakfast and lunch miss less school, get better grades and are more likely to graduate from high school.
Here are the facts:
We’re determined to help. We’ve partnered with the campaign to raise $3 million this year, connecting kids with up to 30 million meals.
See your favorite celeb below? Help them “win” this good-hearted competition and buy their spatula; she who sells out first gets an extra $5,000 donated from us to No Kid Hungry. This is a win-win, folks!

their cause with Williams Sonoma.” Choose Ina!
I love that this is a spatula for a good cause and I love that whoever ends up owning it will definitely get more use out of it than I would.” Choose Hoda!
“During these uncertain times, I hope this spatula can brighten up a kitchen and bring a little more joy to cooking meals at home with your family.”Choose Giada!
“Our world has recently seen particularly challenging times, from natural disasters to global health crises. There’s also a tragedy persisting right in our own schools and neighborhoods that so often goes unnoticed—kids who aren’t getting enough to eat. I created my No Kid Hungry spatula design to remind all of us that we’re fighters, and that we can get through anything together, including putting an end to childhood hunger.” Choose Curtis!
“I’m excited to be joining the No Kid Hungry spatula campaign for a second time. Cooking is a universal language and food can bring people together in a
unique way. It’s the conduit that brings us to a shared table to talk, laugh, think and discuss. Now more than ever, unity and helping those in need are two things we simply can’t drop the ball on.” Choose Kristen!
This design reimagines rainbow sprinkles as if they were actually tiny versions of other joyful objects, like pistachio ice cream, a jar of mayonnaise, and a corn dog. With this spatula, I am excited to be able to spread this joy and support No Kid Hungry to help end childhood hunger in America.” Choose Molly!
“I’ve often said that I never had children of my own so that all children could be mine. The thought of anyone going hungry is horrible, but knowing that it’s a child is simply heartbreaking. We all have to do our part to take care of the little ones around us who need extra love. This spatula program might help in some small way. I have always seen a butterfly as a symbol of freedom and beauty, and I hope this butterfly comes into your home sharing that thought.” Choose Dolly!
“It’s everyone’s responsibility to open up their pie hole and encourage action so kids don’t have to face hunger or food insecurity. Whether people use this spatula for frosting or shepherd’s pie, it’s my hope it can be a small tool in the recipe for ending childhood hunger.” Choose Misha!
“Thrilled to be teaming up with my Williams Sonoma family for the 2nd year with this chocolate chip cookie spatula! It’s a real family affair as my mom designed it! She’s a much better artist than me 🙂 I’m looking forward to continuing to do the work to end childhood hunger in America and spreading a little happiness with cookies at the same time.” Choose Gaby!
“It breaks my heart to know that there are so many children suffering from food insecurity right here in America, and I’m proud to partner with Williams Sonoma and No Kid Hungry to help raise awareness for this amazing organization that is fighting to end child hunger.” Choose Kris!
