Famed Chefs and CACF Volunteers Serve Asian Fusion Meal at GLIDE


IMG_1138On 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.
