#CookForSYRIA is a global fundraising initiative curated by Clerkenwell Boy and SUITCASE Magazine in partnership with UNICEF NextGeneration London. It first started as a simple supper club, where a group of foodie friends came together to celebrate Syrian cuisine and raise money to help UNICEF protect Syrian children. Now, it's become a global movement, where everyone is invited to the table.
This inaugural event in Chicago, hosted at The Ivy Room, will feature dishes from top restaurants for 300 participants. The Cook for Syria initiative has raised $500,000 globally, and is inspired by the simple idea that food has no borders. With the event, UNICEF NextGen hopes to raise money for the nearly 6 million children affected by the humanitarian crisis in Syria and create a conversation about helping the children in the world that need us most.
