MOVIES — Good news for fans of Jon Favreau's 2014 movie Chef: the film, which is about a chef who attempts to rebuild his life by opening a food truck, stars Favreau, Robert Downey Jr., Scarlett Johansson, and Sofia Vergara, among others. The movie was generally well-received by critics, who praised Favreau for his rigorous preparation and attention to detail in portraying a chef and food truck owner.

AIRLINE FOOD — United Airlines has announced that it is teaming up with the Trotter Project to create meals for its first-class and economy passengers. The Chicago-based airline announced this week that it would employ the services of the Trotter Project; in return, United will make a "six-figure" donation to the organization. The Trotter project, which is backed by family and friend of the late chef Charlie Trotter's family, is dedicated to culinary arts education.

SHAKE SHACK — For the fourth year in a row, Shake Shack is issuing a company-wide initiative to benefit No Kid Hungry, a non-profit dedicated to eliminating youth hunger in America. Throughout the month of May, customers who donate at least $2 to No Kid Hungry in Shake Shack restaurants will receive a voucher good for a free milkshake — valued at about $5 —  on a future visit. Last year, Shake Shack raised $338,000 for No Kid Hungry.
