When these were discontinued a few years ago, I had several customers who were disappointed. When they came back, in new colors this year, I knew they would be flying off the shelves and I was right. However, this is not why I wanted to write about them this week.
Paring knives are perhaps one of the versatile knives. They are often one of the most frequently used knives in a chef’s kitchen. They can be used for peeling and chopping a wide assortment of fruits and vegetables. Each of us has some sort of spiritual paring knife we use on a daily basis to help peel and chop our way through the situations, which life brings us each day.
However, the reason I wanted to write about them is they are our Round Up from the Heart product. Each season Pampered Chef features one product, the sale of which contributes to Feeding America.
Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger relief organization. Through the partnership between the two organizations, more than $25 million dollars has been raised since 1991. These funds go to feed the more than 40 million American, a significant number of which are children, who do not know where their next meal is coming from.
These knives, for me, are about more than what they can do in the kitchen. It is about the opportunity to cut through hunger in this country. It is about joining the fight against hunger. It is about doing what I can to make a difference in the world, by starting at home to ensure my neighbor is not hungry.
Every time one of our Paring Knives, or set of Paring Knives, is sold, Pampered Chef contributes 3 meals to Feeding America. You can join me in making a difference. You can order a knife or set of knives. You can round up your order to the nearest dollar, regardless of what you have purchased and those additional funds will go to Feeding America. Or you can offer to host a Feeding America fundraiser with me and together we can raise additional funds to be contributed to Feeding America.
