"I believe passionately that we, as chefs, have to use our unique position to educate people about the importance of food and good nutrition, the scarcity of food for some families, and the importance of local and sustainable approaches. I also think that we have to evolve to keep our work relevant. I know I only serve a portion of the community through my restaurant, HotChocolate in Chicago, and that I don't need to go more than a couple streets from here to witness real need. We all need to bear witness to that--an to respond."
