Pass The Plate. Limited-edition designs. Unlimited generosity.
The recipe is a snap: make a meal, serve it on KitchAid’s uniquely-marked Villeroy & Boch plates, and share it with someone special. That person then keeps it and passes it on to the next. The best part is once your plate is registered, each recipient can add to the plate’s journey, and KitchenAid will add to the donation total. For every person who registers their plate, KitchAid will give $5 to Susan G. Komen North Jersey.

Come back often to read your plate’s story as it’s passed from place to place and person to person.
