We believe that food is more than just sustenance; it has the power to bring people together in times of joy and times of need.
World Central Kitchen was founded by our friend, Chef José Andrés, to deploy the talents of cooks and chefs to respond to disasters like earthquakes, floods, the COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine. WCK has provided over 200 million hot meals to those in crisis. By bringing together volunteers in local communities across the world, WCK feeds those in need and promotes an atmosphere of hope.
With the generous support of our customers, we have raised over $100,000 to support World Central Kitchen since 2018. Join us in supporting this organization which helps people in times of crisis, but also teaches people how to better their communities through education and ongoing support.
In their own words: “World Central Kitchen uses the expertise of its Chef Network to empower people to be part of the solution, with a focus on health, education, jobs, and social enterprise.
Health: Cleaner cooking with clean cook stoves and food safety/sanitation training.
Education: School kitchens to support feeding programs that encourage school attendance and provide a source of sustainable revenue for the school.
Jobs: Culinary training to elevate the hospitality workforce, increase earnings, enhance quality of life, and strengthen Haiti’s economy.
Social Enterprise: Food ventures that increase income, create jobs, and provide transferable vocational skills to low-income communities.
Join us as we use the power of food to empower communities and strengthen economies.
