Chuck Samuelson

Founder and President of Kitchens For Good

Chuck Samuelson, Founder and President of Kitchens for Good, has spent a lifetime in the food service industry as a chef, restaurateur, and consultant. Chuck started his career as a dishwasher at 13 and rose to Executive Chef and Restaurant General Manager in his late twenties. He has owned award-winning restaurants and catering companies and served as the Senior Manager for Food Services at Stone Brewing Company. While working as an Executive Chef at some of San Diego’s premiere restaurants, Samuelson was shocked at the tremendous amount of food being wasted while many in the community lacked access to nutritious food. Samuelson leveraged his network and skills to build a social enterprise that is designed to break the cycles of food waste, poverty and hunger in the community.
