NEWH LA partners with sweetgreen feeding our frontlines with World Central Kitchen
Sweetgreen, the seasonal restaurant with the mission of connecting people to real food, announces the launch of the Sweetgreen Impact Outpost Fund. The fund — the first of its kind for the fast-casual company – was created in partnership with World Central Kitchen (WCK), the international not-for-profit organization founded by chef José Andrés that uses the power of food to heal and strengthen communities in times of crisis.
In the midst of the current crisis, 100% of funds raised will be dedicated to providing more free sweetgreen meals to these healthcare heroes — with a goal of donating over 100,000 meals together from hospital workers to medical personnel.
