Chefs for Humanity, a nonprofit founded by Chef Cat Cora, announced a $50,000 donation on Monday from Oceania Cruises.
“We are delighted that Cat Cora is now part of the Oceania Cruises family—her passion for fine cuisine captures the core of what we do every day,” stated Kunal S. Kamlani, Oceania Cruises’ president. “We are immensely proud of Cat’s philanthropic endeavors outside the kitchen and the work she is doing to reduce hunger across the globe. It is an honor to make this commitment to Chefs for Humanity in celebration of her role as godmother to Riviera.”
In May, Cat Cora christened Oceania Cruises’ newest 1,250-guest ship Riviera, the second new ship launched by Oceania Cruises in under 18 months. Designed for epicureans, Riviera features 10 dining venues – six of which are gourmet restaurants – plus a Bon Appétit Culinary Center for hands-on learning and La Reserve by Wine Spectator, a professional facility for wine tastings and pairing dinners.
“Smart philanthropy from organizations like Oceania can make an enormous difference in providing and implementing solutions to impact hunger and malnutrition. Chefs for Humanity is honored to be a partner with Oceania Cruises in this fight against hunger.”
Chefs for Humanity was founded in 2004 after the tsunami disaster in Indonesia.
