On December 9, 2013, the Asian Chefs Association and Chinese American Community Foundation hosted this year’s Chefs Without Borders Holiday Lunch and Dinner at GLIDE. The annual event brings together award-winning chefs and over 100 Asian American community volunteers to serve a free lunch and dinner for 2,500 of Glide’s community of disadvantaged clients.
“The service has become a wonderful tradition at GLIDE and people tell us they look forward to it every year. It’s a great way to start the season of giving,” said Khai Duong, former Executive Chef at Ana Mandara and co-founder of Chefs Without Borders. Larry Chu from Chef Chu’s Restaurant and Chef Khai have been doing this for 9 years now. Many local Asian fusion restaurants and colleagues contributed to the food donation, including Three Seasons in Palo Alto and the Hilton Hotel.
“As a new foundation, we are honored to co-host such an established event,” said CACF co-founder David Lei. “We are seeing a large number of seniors using GLIDE’s services. This event calls attention to this issue and it pulls together volunteers who want to make a difference.”
