Scarlett Johansson is putting her lips to good use! The Avengers: Infinity War star is one of many celebs who took part in No Kid Hungry’s collaboration with Williams Sonoma and designed a spatula to help fight childhood hunger.
Johansson’s kitchen utensil features a fun red and pink print of her own lips and has the phrase “Made with love” written on it. “I wanted to create something that was playful and would be immediately attractive to purchase,” she tells Us Weekly of her spatula. “I thought the kiss imprint would look cute in a tall bowl next to wooden spoons.”
The celeb spatula collection also features creations designed by Gwen Stefani, Olivia Munn, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Kevin Bacon and more. The star-powered utensils debuted in Williams Sonoma stores and online on Monday, August 13, in support of No Kid Hungry’s mission to end childhood hunger in America.
Since an estimated 13 million kids in the U.S. struggle with hunger, 30 percent of proceeds from the sale of the spatulas will go directly to benefit No Kid Hungry. Every dollar raised will connect kids in need with 10 meals.
“No child should go hungry and America should be leading by example,” Johansson, 33, tells Us. “I feel very fortunate to be able to bring whatever attention I can to No Kid Hungry and their incredible efforts to eliminate child poverty.”
For the Golden Globe nominee, giving back is part of the upside of fame. “I feel very lucky to be able to use whatever spotlight my work creates and shine it on organizations that I feel are doing important, efficient and reliable work, like No Kid Hungry,” she explains.
Though Johansson admits the charity landscape can sometimes feel “crowded and confusing to navigate,” she tells Us that she gravitates toward organizations that are “transparent and effective in the hopes of providing a clear POV for like-minded volunteers and donors.”
