Next in our series of posts about Charitocracy nominees, we have World Central Kitchen, nominated by donor
Stephanie. They're a group of chefs creating smart solutions to hunger and poverty.
A few words on Charitocracy
Firstly, for newcomers: here's how it works. Donors pool their monthly contributions, as little as $1. The cause with the most votes each month wins the pot. No matter how much or how little you contribute, each donor at Charitocracy gets one vote. This is where charity meets democracy. So please share this post and ask your friends to join us and vote! That's how we spread the word and, as a result, grow the monthly pot. The bigger the pot, the bigger our positive impact on the world!
About World Central Kitchen
José Andrés founded World Central Kitchen after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti with the belief that food can be an agent of change. We have expanded globally and have developed into a group of chefs creating smart solutions to hunger and poverty.
Today, 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.
Since our inception, our work has affected communities in Brazil, Cambodia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nicaragua, Zambia, and the United States.
Join us as we use the power of food to empower communities and strengthen economies.
