TV Chef José Andrés Tackles Job #1: Feeding The People

temp-post-image

Celebrity trappings aside, Chef José Andrés considers himself, above all else, to be a cook. So after a tragic earthquake devastated Haiti, Andrés did what a cook would do: he came up with a plan, and got to work feeding the people displaced by the disaster.

That was back in 2010. Today, in the face of Covid-19, World Central Kitchen has pivoted to safely feeding people in a pandemic. And in a brilliant move intended to support restaurants by helping them to feed the hungry, they've created Restaurants For The People.

Andrés' program has hired workers in Covid-19 hotspots from NYC to the San Francisco Bay area, and identified communities that need food the most. They coordinate with delivery services like Postmates and Uber Eats to bring hot meals to low-income families, homeless people, seniors who don’t feel safe outdoors and others. And it's no small effort: already, World Central Kitchen has promised to pay to prepare one million meals at more than 400 restaurants nationwide.
