World Central Kitchen: Tribute Map

icon Jose Andres
World Central Kitchen - Tribute Map

World Central Kitchen (WCK) is first to the frontlines providing fresh meals in crises.

"Food is essential to life every single day, all over the world—and it is more important than ever in a crisis. Not only is a thoughtful, freshly prepared meal one less thing someone has to worry about in the wake of a disaster, it is a reminder that you are not alone, someone is thinking about you, and someone cares."

This StoryMap is a tribute to the work of World Central Kitchen around the world.

World Central Kitchen

Chef José Andrés

Food has the power to be the nourishment and hope we need to pick ourselves back up in the darkest times. 

In 2010, Chef José Andrés, ready to use his culinary knowledge and talent to help, headed to Haiti following a devastating earthquake. Cooking alongside displaced families in a camp, he was guided on the proper way to cook black beans the way Haitians like to eat them: mashed and sieved into a creamy sauce.

It wasn’t just about feeding people in need—it was about listening, learning, and cooking side by side with the people impacted by the crisis. This is the real meaning of comfort food, and it’s the core value that José, along with his wife Patricia, used at the center of founding World Central Kitchen. - World Central Kitchen

“These are the heroes of World Central Kitchen. These 7 beautiful souls were killed by the IDF in a strike as they were returning from a full day's mission. Their smiles, laughter, and voices are forever embedded in our memories. And we have countless memories of them giving their best selves to the world. We are reeling from our loss. The world's loss.” - Erin Gore, CEO
