Mission Using the power of food to empower communities and strengthen economies.

A message from José Andrés:

As a chef I cook for a living and I care about food.

I care about alleviating hunger, particularly in times of crisis and natural disasters. I had a wakeup call when Hurricane Katrina hit New Orleans – thousands were left without food for over 72 hours.

When an earthquake hit Haiti in January 2010, I decided to fly down to cook for people who were desperate for nourishment. It was my time to act, but I wanted to offer a sustainable solution.

I created World Central Kitchen to find sustainable solutions to ending food insecurity and malnutrition. There are many people to feed and many plates to fill in a world where food should be accessible to everyone.

I believe we can eradicate hunger, we can beat food insecurity, but we need to be smart and innovative, and we need to do it now.

Join me by starting with Haiti. Why feed a few when we can feed many?
