Chefs joined #TogetherAtHome

In March, the Chefs' Manifesto joined #TogetherAtHome, a virtual series initiated by Global Citizen and helping raise awareness and action to support the great work of the World Health Organisation and the fight against COVID-19. The SDG2 Hub is working with chefs around the world who are helping to encourage people to stay home and practice social distancing - the most important thing we can all do to beat coronavirus - and talking about the power of food to connect us and keep us healthy. Through Instagram Lives, chefs have been sharing delicious, healthy and nutritious cupboard recipes and their tips for fermentation alongside artists Chris Martin and John Legend, to name a few. 

As we have reached the end of this project, we would like to thank the 40+ chefs who dedicated their time and the 1000s of viewers who joined in, shared their experiences and cooked along!

KEY MESSAGES:

These are they key messages you need to get across: 

  • #TogetherAtHome with Global Citizen is helping to raise awareness and action to support the great work of WHO and the fight against the Coronavirus  
  • Excited to join #TogetherAtHome series and highlight how we can all support global health. Practicing social distancing is the most important thing we can all do. Please be responsible and stay at home! 
  • If you want to find further ways to help out & offer support, head to www.globalcitizen.org/coronavirus 
  • I'm advocating for good food for all at this critical time. 
  • As a chef, I’m seeing the impact of the coronavirus on food and food systems with restaurants closing, empty supermarket shelves and farmers not knowing what to do with extra produce. Making sure everyone has good food, especially now for healthy people, is key. Good food starts with farmers, it’s nutritious and saves lives.
