Amid this ongoing crisis Lucca Osteria & Bar feels compelled to give back. Like so many around the world, they have felt utterly helpless and filled with deep despair for what the Ukrainians are enduring.
Feeding people is what they do. It’s what they know. It’s how they show love and compassion. Since they are unable to literally feed Ukrainian refugees fleeing the war zone, they are hosting a cocktail reception to raise funds to donate to an organization that is doing what they can’t.
Since February 24, the World Central Kitchen began working at a 24-hour pedestrian border crossing in southern Poland, serving hot, nourishing meals. Now, they’ve expanded their efforts to serve people across the region in Romania, Moldova, and Hungary. WCK is also partnering with restaurants inside of Ukraine to get hot meals to anyone in need.
All ticket sales and additional proceeds from this event will be donated directly to World Central Kitchen.
