Anthony Bourdain

Today we learn of Anthony Bourdain’s death at 61. For many in the food industry and beyond, Bourdain has been a force of good for decades, telling us stories from around the globe and showing everyone that food is an adventure beyond the plate. Tony was an advocate for street food. He was integral in the launch of the World Street Food Congress in Singapore, an event that promotes and professionalizes street food. It’s a sad day for all.

Food can be a difficult world for all involved. Hard days and difficult nights. If you or someone you know needs help, 1-800-273-TALK is just a moment away. There is also a crisis text line. For crisis support in Spanish, call 1-888-628-9454. The lines are staffed by a mix of paid professionals and unpaid volunteers trained in crisis and suicide intervention. The confidential environment, the 24-hour accessibility, a caller’s ability to hang up at any time and the person-centered care have helped its success, advocates say.

The International Association for Suicide Prevention and Befrienders Worldwide also provide contact information for crisis centers around the world.

Rest in Peace Anthony Bourdain. We’ll always have your stories.
