World Central Kitchen uses the power of food to nourish communities and strengthen economies through times of crisis and beyond. Chef José Andrés and his wife started WCK in 2010 and it has grown to help people in need following natural and manmade disasters and other crises. For example, Andrés arrived in Puerto Rico four days after Hurricane Maria devastated the island. The economy was destroyed and for most people there was no clean water, no food, no power, no gas, and no way to communicate with the outside world. From personally serving sancocho to eventually cooking 100,000 meals a day at more than a dozen kitchens across the island, Andrés helped feed hundreds of thousands of people on the island.
