World Central Kitchen: Supporting Ukraine

On behalf of the entire Sweet Street family, we have made a donation to World Central Kitchen (WCK) directly supporting their humanitarian work in Ukraine. Since the war began, WCK has served over 37 million meals at over 3,000 distribution sites across 8 countries. Our contribution allows WCK to provide 10,000 meals to refugee families and those who remain in Ukraine.

“Like most of us, since the beginning of this war I thought “What can we do to help?”. Then, Brice Holland, R&D Strategy Manager, suggested supporting the efforts of WCK. We began researching, to see how they utilize donation money and found that through their network and partnerships every dollar directly supports communities impacted by crisis. ” – Sandy

Founded in 2010 by Chef José Andrés, World Central Kitchen (WCK) is first to the frontlines, providing meals in response to humanitarian, climate, and community crises. WCK sources and hires locally whenever possibly, in an effort to jump-start economic recovery through food. “Sometimes you just need to decide to do something. Sometimes you just have to show up with a sandwich or some warm rice and beans.” – Jose Andres

At Sweet Street, The Power of Good Food Shared inspires all of us to create the most luscious, indulgent foods. But more than that, we know that the true POWER in sharing good food is compassion, togetherness and hope.  It is your hard work and dedication that make contributions like this possible.

Thank you for helping make the world a sweeter place to be.

Raise Your Spirits w/ Non-Alcoholic Bevvies

Something for everyone, from functional to flirty. Non-alcoholic beverages are on the rise. According to NielsenIQ, sales of non-alcoholic beverages jumped 32% in the past year, while non-alcohol spirits have grown 114% during the same period.

Pairing beverages with dessert enhances the after-dinner experience, complementing a slice of pie or contrasting the cheesecakes flavor. Coupling something bold and new with a classic – tried and true – is a great way to embrace trends while catering to your guests curiosity and cravings.
