Sushi Roku hosts fundraiser for Ukrainian refugees through World Central Kitchen

March 07, 2022

On Wednesday, March 9, Innovative Dining Group along with Yakumi, will be donating 10% of all sales towards feeding Ukrainian refugees through the World Central Kitchen. WCK is serving thousands of fresh meals to Ukrainian families fleeing home as well as those who remain in the country. Restaurant locations throughout Los Angeles, Las Vegas, Newport Beach, and Scottsdale will be participating in donating fundraiser proceeds to WCK’s “Chefs for Ukraine” initiative.

“Like others, we felt helpless with the events unfolding in Ukraine. We are so inspired by what Chef José Andrés is doing right now through World Central Kitchen. By supporting his non-profit, we will help feed refugees directly on the ground. We hope that through this one-day fundraising initiative, we will unite to make a difference,” says Innovative Dining Group founder, Lee Maen.

Diners can head to Yakumi in Burbank, and Innovative Dining Group restaurants, which include: BOA Steakhouse, Sushi Roku in Newport Beach, and Katana. For more information on IDG locations, please visit
