World Central Kitchen

José Andrés founded World Central Kitchen after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti with the belief that food can be an agent of change. They 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. Health: Cleaner cooking with clean cook stoves and food safety/sanitation training. Education: School kitchens to support feeding programs that encourage school attendance and provide a source of sustainable revenue for the school. Jobs: Culinary 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 their inception, their work has affected communities in Brazil, Cambodia, Cuba, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nicaragua, Zambia, and the United States. Join us as they use the power of food to empower communities and strengthen economies. WCK is a registered 501(c)3 non-profit organization.
