Atlanta Asian grazing box fundraiser

17 AAPI chefs teamed up for a fundraiser for families of the victims of the Atlanta spa shootings. It sold out in hours.

On March 16, the evening a man shot and killed eight people—six of them Asian women—at three different metro Atlanta spas, Thip Athakhanh, owner of Laotian restaurant Snackboxe Bistro, and Mia Orino, of Filipino pop-up Kamayan ATL, were at dinner. “We came home, saw the news, and were shocked about what happened. We knew we had to do something,” says Athakhanh.

In many ways, it’s more impressive.
