After Puerto Rico was clobbered by Hurricane Maria, celebrity chef José Andrés and his nonprofit World Central Kitchen were on the ground serving meals to all of the survivors. Now, he has set up shop right in the middle of Hurricane Florence so he can feed everybody throughout the storm.
In Puerto Rico alone, José and his team served over 3.6 million meals and stayed for an entire year to keep making food for the recovering nation. They traveled to Hawaii when the volcano erupted and California when the wildfires were burning.
Last week, they set up kitchens in Raleigh and Wilmington, North Carolina – the most endangered parts of the state. The team has already delivered over 140,000 meals to dozens of shelters, police stations, response teams, neighborhoods, and families.
