Chef Jakob selected to represent Alabama during the Chefcycle for No Kid Hungry, May 16 -18 in Santa Rosa, CA

This years Spring 2017 event hopes to raise over 2 million dollars in support of No Kid Hungry and Chef Jakob is excited to announce his participation in this event.  Three days and three hundred miles push the physical limits of participating chefs as they work to end childhood hunger in the United States.

Chef Jakob has worked extensively with the One In Four Hungry initiative and in 2016 formed the local CHEFS AGAINST HUNGER bike ride in Decatur Alabama raising funds for Morgan County Alabama in the fight to end childhood hunger.  Through this initiative, the community raised over 6,000. to be granted to non profits in need of food supplies throughout 2017.  Chef Jakob will announce this years date soon for the 2017 CHEFS AGAINST HUNGER ride this fall and asks the pubic to support local and national efforts to end hunger.
