  • Common
  • Kristin Cavallari
  • Tiny Chef
  • Heather McMahan
  • Chef Joshua Weissman

Williams Sonoma will also be donating 30% of the proceeds of a select assortment of food items benefiting No Kid Hungry including:

  • No Kid Hungry Chocolate Caramel Fudge Cookies – Crispy, gooey and deliciously decadent, our triple-layer cookies feature chocolate wafers that are topped with rich fudge caramel and dipped in chocolate. Set of 12, $24.95.
  • No Kid Hungry® Georgetown Cupcake Fall Cupcake Sampler – Decadent and delicious, the bakery’s legendary treats are made by hand with premium ingredients like Valrhona chocolate, Madagascar Bourbon vanilla and European sweet-cream butter. Set of 12, $79.95.

“Our annual Tools for Change campaign is an exciting opportunity for our customers to join Williams Sonoma and No Kid Hungry’s efforts to end childhood hunger in America,” said Williams Sonoma President Felix Carbullido. “We are grateful to our celebrity partners for designing this year’s spatulas and for using their platform to help Williams Sonoma raise money and awareness to support No Kid Hungry.”

“It takes all of us to end childhood hunger. The Tools for Change spatula program and the power of our partnership with Williams Sonoma embodies this spirit perfectly,” said Billy Shore, founder and executive chair of Share Our Strength, the organization behind the No Kid Hungry campaign. “We’re grateful to Williams Sonoma year after year for providing the roster of celebrity spatula artists and its customers with the opportunity to support our nation’s kids. Each spatula sold means more kids have access to the food they need to thrive and the future they deserve.”

Celebrity spatula designers Kate Hudson, Common and P!NK also commented:

“I am so proud to support No Kid Hungry and partner with Williams Sonoma in the fight against childhood hunger. I hope our spatula is a reminder of the importance of making sure that no child goes hungry. When kids have access to three meals a day, they can dream big and have great futures. The possibilities are endless.” – Kate Hudson

Food is essential for life; it’s one of the basic elements that every human being needs. When I’m hungry, I can’t function at the level I want to. It’s unacceptable that kids in our country live with hunger. That’s why I’m grateful to be a part of this initiative to support No Kid Hungry’s work and spread supreme love to our nation’s children, so they have the food they need to grow up happy, healthy and strong.” – Common

“I’m proud to partner with Williams Sonoma and No Kid Hungry, because I was once a kid who faced food insecurity. Willow and I both designed spatulas this year, and each one you purchase helps provide 40 meals to kids in need.” – P!NK

The products from the 2023 Tools for Change fundraising program are now available online and at all Williams Sonoma retail locations while supplies last.
