In support of the current humanitarian crisis in Ukraine, Watershed Distillery of Columbus, Ohio, announced it will donate 100% of the profits from its vodka sales during March and April to World Central Kitchen to aid in feeding Ukrainians.
World Central Kitchen, a nonprofit organization founded in 2010 by restaurateur and philanthropist José Andrés, is providing boots-on-the-ground support for Ukrainians in need—serving hot meals at border crossings for families fleeing home and supporting local restaurants preparing meals in major Ukrainian cities.
“Like many around the world, we are heartbroken for Ukraine and stand in solidarity with the Ukrainian people,” shared Greg Lehman, CEO and founder of Watershed Distillery, in a press release. “In the craft distilling community and our local Central Ohio region, we recognize how important community support is in times of need and in building resilient, locally led food systems. We want to do our small part to help other communities who need it most right now.”
World Central Kitchen continues to expand its efforts as the crisis evolves. For updates and more information, or to make a direct donation, visit www.wck.org.
Watershed Vodka is one of the distillery’s flagship products, first released in 2010. It is produced in Central Ohio and distilled from U.S. grown corn and Ohio grown apples. For more information on Watershed Distillery, please visit watersheddistillery.com.
