Chef Garvin is a man of many talents — but this skilled chef is going from filling stomachs to warming the hearts of countless people in his latest mission.
Recognized from his countless TV appearances, signature recipes and infectious smile, Chef Garvin is a distinguished celebrity chef who has teamed with Allstate in an effort to highlight local heroes in communities throughout America.
The mission is part of the Give It Up For Good campaign, which is a national program aimed to highlight the remarkable stories of good deeds of everyday people that often don’t receive the attention and acknowledgment they deserve, particularly among communities of color.
“I think it’s important to highlight people who are doing good, particularly among people of color, because there is a huge misconception that all things hood are bad and everyone in the neighborhood is doing something bad. That is not the case,” Garvin told theGrio.
“You go into a lot of African-American communities, and, yes, there are problems, but there also are people who are really doing really great stuff. Whether it’s keeping kids safe at programs, working at the local YMCA, volunteering at some of the shelters or just being neighborhood mentors.
