Food Hero – Chef José Andrés

When a crisis hits, José Andrés jumps into action like a veritable superhero. The famed chef and restauranteur is also the founder of World Central Kitchen (please donate HERE), a nonprofit which provides meals to afflicted people during humanitarian disasters. He was nominated for a 2019 Nobel Peace Prize for his efforts. Now, he is facing the greatest challenge of his life.

Andrés has put his full weight into responding to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the virus-stricken Grand Princess cruise ship docked at the Port of Oakland, he and his team set up operations and began fork lifting meals to the passengers and crew. More recently he donated 10,000 N95 masks to Washington, DC hospitals. And as the crisis has spread, Andrés’ ambitions have swelled. Via World Central Kitchen he is recruiting an army of chefs and food workers to deliver meals and set up community kitchens across the United States.
