    Good point!  Look for a blog post about it in the coming week, but in the meantime: https://www.worldcentralkitchen.org/what-we-do

    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 creat…

    My favorite NPR show has to be Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me.  It’s a great way to catch up on the week’s news, and laugh at it instead of cry.  Very clever writing delivered by host Peter Sagal, guest “contestants,” and regular panelists.  But I miss Carl Kasell as the announcer!  <3

  • Benj edited their comment on the cause UNIDOS Disaster Relief Fund @ HF 1 year ago

    While writing today’s blog post, I’ve noticed that Hispanic Federation seems to have steered the UNIDOS fund only toward Puerto Rico’s Hurricane Maria relief & recovery.  No obvious mention of Mexico earthquake relief any more:

    A good rating or a bad rating from Charity Navigator is valuable info, but such a small % (or sub-%!) of charities are presently rated on there, no rating can’t be taken as a negative.

    This video covers some of GHCF’s 20-year track record, and I personally feel like this local approach would serve the community better than, for…[Read more]
