An Ode To Chef Jose Andres & World Central KitchenFood
The good people behind Wold Central Kitchen have been helping people all over in desperate need last year, from Puerto Rico to California Wildfire victims - and now, through the Corona Virus. How did this begin, you ask? In his words: “When an earthquake hit Haiti in January 2010, I decided to fly down to cook for people who were desperate for nourishment. It was my time to act, but I wanted to offer a sustainable solution. I created World Central Kitchen to find sustainable solutions to ending food insecurity and malnutrition. There are many people to feed and many plates to fill in a world where food should be accessible to everyone. World Central Kitchen is a catalyst of change through chef-driven programs that focus on improving health, education, and employment. Using our chef expertise, we will continue to invest in safe cooking methods, healthy school meals, and culinary training empowering communities and strengthening economies around the world”
Again, after Hurricane Maria hit Puerto Rico in 2017, chef José Andrés traveled to the devastated island with a simple idea: to feed the hungry. Millions of meals served later, Andrés shares the remarkable story through this Ted Talk of creating the world’s biggest restaurant — and the awesome power of letting people in need know that somebody cares about them.
