To leave a long-lasting impact beyond raising funds and providing meals the non-profit builds kitchens for orphanages, and teaches children how to source and cook food while encouraging them to develop confidence and independence.
According to the global humanitarian organization Action Against Hunger, undernourished people increased by as many as 150 million from 2019 to 2022. Joey’s Food Fight helps in the fight against world hunger by providing sustainable resources and fundamental culinary skills to children in need.
Joey’s Food Fight started in its home city of Chicago, assisting children in Magnificent Mile, West Loop, Lincoln Park, and other neighborhoods in the city. Over time, its services spread to different orphanages outside the country.
Joey Morelli, a chef, and restaurateur with many years of experience in the food industry, founded the non-profit to give back to his community. With his culinary expertise and sense of humor, Joey’s Food Fight makes learning how to cook an enjoyable experience for children.
Aside from providing the necessary resources and teaching culinary skills at orphanages, the non-profit serves food to teen shelters three times a week in partnership with StandUp For Kids.
The Joey’s Food Fight YouTube channel features Chef Morelli’s food recipes and projects carried out by the non-profit. People can watch cooking videos and selected charity events at https://www.youtube.com/@joeysfoodfight
With the help of like-minded organizations and individuals, Joey’s Food Fight continues to expand its reach and make a difference in the lives of underprivileged children.
Morelly said, “I aim to visit ten different countries and build kitchens in orphanages, providing meals and teaching culinary skills.”
