Example: Walk us through a specific example(s) of how this solution makes a difference; include its primary activities.
KitchenConnection.org is an online platform that connects individuals wanting to learn how to cook a specific dish with others who are willing to teach them, through a live video session, directly embedded into the website.
An example of this interaction, in partnership with Action Against Hunger and the World Association of Chefs Societies can be found here:
Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
Currently, Kitchen Connection has the involvement of the culinary associations: Maîtres Cuisiniers de France, the American Culinary Federation, the Associacion Dominicana de Chefs, and the World Association of Chefs Societies, totaling a community of over 11 million culinary enthusiasts.
We are currently working with culinary schools, such as those in the US & Puerto Rico, and the Dominican Republic.
The proceeds of the interaction go to the instructor's food organization of choice, including our partner charity, Action Against Hunger, and in the works, the World Food Program USA.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
Kitchen Connection is operating in a private beta with its partners. It will open to the public in 2015 when Kitchen Connection will be exploring the gastronomies of various countries in which its partner charity, Action Against Hunger, operates.
According to the World Food Programme, 'Hunger is the world's greatest solvable problem'.
In 5-10 years, we hope that our Connections will decrease world hunger by at least 10%.
