The Details

World Cares Center rose from the ashes of 9/11, during a time when average New Yorkers volunteered side by side with rescue workers. During our efforts, we witnessed the impact of a collaborative community and the healing effect of food. The Iron Skillet® Cook Off celebrates the spirit of cooperation between first responders and community volunteers during times of crisis.

The Iron Skillet® Cook Off is a unique and exciting culinary competition between firefighters from each of New York’s five boroughs who are paired with some of the finest professional chefs in the area.

All proceeds benefit World Cares Center’s ability to respond to disasters and crises across the United States and abroad, preparing and equipping community volunteers with training, protective equipment, and critical life-saving skills and supplies.

Join us for the annual Iron Skillet® Cook Off on Monday, October 7th, 2019 at Federal Hall National Memorial. Come celebrate the spirit of cooperation between first responders and community volunteers. World Cares Center’s much anticipated yearly fundraiser matches five firehouse gourmets with renowned restaurant chefs to serve our guests a delicious culinary experience as each team competes for the 2019 Iron Skillet ® achievement.

We welcome you to host a Ready Responders training at your company and honor those who become prepared through our #IamReady campaign that will also be featured at the Iron Skillet ® Cook Off event.

The #IAmReady Campaign

The #IamReady campaign encourages and acknowledges individuals and teams to prepare themselves to reduce the likelihood of accidents, prepare for disasters and prepare to respond as a disaster volunteer.
