The World Central Kitchen
The World Central Kitchen was developed in 2010 by chef José Andrés. The Spanish chef, shocked by the earthquake in Haiti which took place the same year, had the idea of this non-profit NGO in order to provide the populations in extreme distress with hot meals and emergency necessities. As crises crystallize in the four corners of the globe: from Pakistan to Ukraine or even to the borders of Mexico and the United States, the WCK works tirelessly to help vulnerable populations to fight starvation, around a hot meal. The figures of the NGO are pharaonic, millions of meals have been provided in the countries throughout the past years, where the chefs have been able to work, some teams can provide 50 per day, others are able to deliver more than 10,000.
Elyssa Kaplan, currently director of culinary operations for the NGO, tells us about her experience as a chef who chose to tirelessly pursue the work of the World Central Kitchen, which never stops cooking for those who need it most. Interview.
