LOUISVILLE, Ky., July 1, 2020 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Les Dames d'Escoffier (LDEI) has a newly established LDEI Relief Fund, created in response to the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on women in the culinary industry. The LDEI Relief Fund will provide funding to established 501(c)(3)'s, non-governmental agencies (NGO'S) and other recognized international nonprofits benefiting women impacted by COVID-19 and other disasters globally.

LDEI is an organization of women leaders in food, beverage and hospitality whose mission is education and philanthropy for the good of the global community. The LDEI Relief Fund priority is to extend assistance to established nonprofits or non-governmental agencies (NGO's) who provide essentials and services to benefit women impacted by catastrophes.

Bev Shaffer, LDEI President, said, "The newly formed LDEI Relief Fund stems from the Mission, Vision and Guiding Principles of Les Dames d'Escoffier International. As a preeminent global professional association, we strive to inspire, advance and support women in food, beverage and hospitality to achieve excellence in leadership and philanthropy and are committed to creating lasting change in our communities through focused philanthropy."

Additionally, LDEI will support capital requests that help meet compelling community need and offer a broad social benefit to women.
