    Because Chef Jose Andres is a world treasure.  With his charity, World Central Kitchen, he steps up where Governments don’t or can’t or just take too long.  I certainly hope he gets the Nobel Peace Prize he is nominated for!!!!

    It would be helpful to know what the World Central Kitchen does that is charitable, or a link to their website.

    Good point!  Look for a blog post about it in the coming week, but in the meantime:

    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.

    • HealthCleaner cooking with clean cook stoves and food safety/sanitation training.
    • EducationSchool kitchens to support feeding programs that encourage school attendance and provide a source of sustainable revenue for the school.
    • JobsCulinary 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.
