On April 15, our friends Ryan and Jen Hidinger announced that they are moving forward with their new restaurant, Staplehouse. They also excitedly announced their new, purpose-driven direction for the restaurant. Staplehouse will act as the flagship for The Giving Kitchen, an entity whose mission is to provide Atlanta's restaurant and hospitality employees financial relief from medical or other unanticipated hardships. Check out the attached documentary for more details, their story, and to see that Ryan and Jen are two of the most extraordinary cats around.
But Ryan and Jen can't do it alone. They're asking for contributions via Indiegogo and we urge you to head over and check it out. In the words of the Hidinger's themselves, "If you love food, contribute . If you like good people, contribute. If you hate cancer, contribute. If you effing hate cancer, contribute. If you think Staplehouse will make Atlanta a better place, contribute. If you want to take care of the industry that’s taken care of you, contribute. If you want to make history, contribute. If you like awesome chefs with beards, contribute. If you like to contribute, um, contribute. If you don’t have money to contribute, share."
Let's do this, Atlanta.
