Celebrity spatulas are back.
Williams Sonoma has revealed this year’s range of artistic cooking spatulas as part of the annual fundraising project benefitting No Kid Hungry, a national campaign to end childhood hunger in America.
Prominent celebrities, chefs, athletes, musicians and social influencers have designed a limited-edition celebrity spatulas which are now on sale at Williams Sonoma stores and online. This year’s collection of spatulas retail for $13.95 each, with 30 per cent of the price benefiting No Kid Hungry.
This year’s limited-edition spatulas were designed by the following:
- Grammy Award-winning singer and songwriter Gwen Stefani.
- Celebrity chef and cookbook author Ina Garten.
- Award-winning actor and musician Kevin Bacon.
- Celebrity chef and cookbook author Giada De Laurentiis.
- Award-winning actor Jesse Tyler Ferguson.
- Actress Olivia Munn.
- Actress Skai Jackson.
- San Francisco Giants outfielder Hunter Pence.
- Award-winning actress Scarlett Johansson (pictured above).
- Television host and producer Carson Daly.
- Celebrity YouTuber and entrepreneur Connor Franta.
- World champion boxer, cookbook author and host of “Home Made Simple” on Own Laila Ali.
- Celebrity chef and cookbook author Duff Goldman.
- Grammy Award-winning musician and co-founder of The Roots, musical director of The Tonight Show and James Beard Award nominated author Questlove.
- Fashion designer and cookbook author Zac Posen.
“There is absolutely no reason any child living in America should go hungry,” said Scarlett Johansson sharing her passion for the cause. “But they do. That is why I am proud to be able to partner with Williams Sonoma to support No Kid Hungry, an organisation that helps bring food to children in the US that are in need, so they have the nourishment they need to grow into the generation that will continue to effect positive change.”
“I’m a true believer that if you have a full belly, you have a happy heart,” added Hunter Pence. “Not only will my spatula provide some cheerfulness in your kitchen, but it will also help No Kid Hungry bring some cheer through healthy meals for children.”
This year’s celebrity spatulas designers will be spreading the word on social media by competing in a “spatdown” posting about the campaign, with the goal of selling the most spatulas. Williams Sonoma will make a $5000 donation to No Kid Hungry on behalf of the winner.

The spatulas are but one part of a broader fundraising program by the Williams Sonoma group which this year hopes to raise $2.5 million, enough to by nearly 25 million meals.
Williams Sonoma retail locations will also host cooking classes for kids during August and September, which is No Kid Hungry month. Classes include a Junio Che Pizza Part on August 25, a Lunch Box Party on September 1 and a Cookie and Cupcake Decorating Party on September 15.
To date, Williams Sonoma has raised over $5.5 million for No Kid Hungry with every dollar raised, providing the charity the ability to provide 10 healthy meals to children in need.
