Jose Andres, Chef and Humanitarian

Title

Jose Andres, Chef and Humanitarian

Description

From Readers Digest: Critically acclaimed chef JosAndr came to the United States from Spain in 1991 and began a long career of award-winning culinary innovation. After the tragic 2010 earthquake in Haiti, Andr formed the World Central Kitchen (WCK), an organization that provides hot meals to those affected by natural disasters. After Hurricane Maria ravaged Puerto Rico in 2017, he gathered 19,000 volunteers to serve 3.5 million meals to distraught residents who had limited access to electricity, clean water, and food. In 2019, Andr fed furloughed workers during a month-long government shutdown. We have shown that there is no place too far or disaster too great for our chefs to be there with a hot plate of food when its needed most, Andr writes on the WCK website. Andr has won the James Beard Award for both Outstanding Chef and Humanitarian of the Year and is a nominee for the 2019 Nobel Peace Prize (winners will be announced October 11).
