The World Central Kitchen is on the ground in the Bahamas with food they brought in by helicopter, which will be cooked by chef Jose Andres and his team. He says they have “kitchens ready to go and shelters mapped out. If kitchens are destroyed, we build one and cook in big paella pans!”
They made thousands of sandwiches in advance. The food is finally getting to the Bahamas now that Dorian has moved. The areas the World Central Kitchen are feeding were demolished by Dorian. Few structures remain. The infrastructure is badly damaged. There are no services and no stores. The situation there is beyond dire. Imagine what a good meal means to desperate, hungry people who have lost everything and are traumatized. Not only is it food, it also means someone cares, and help is coming.
Mission statement for World Central Kitchen
“With your help, 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 it’s needed most.
I hope you’ll dream with us as we envision a world where there is always a warm meal, an encouraging word, and a helping hand in hard times. Thank you for taking this journey with us.
Join me in fulfilling the inspiring words of John Steinbeck: Wherever there’s a fight so hungry people may eat, we will be there.”
