World Central Kitchen uses the power of food to empower communities and strengthen economies. Through locally led approaches, their food resilience programs advance human and environmental health, offer access to professional culinary training, create jobs, and improve food security for the people we serve.
This work began after the devastating 2010 earthquake in Haiti, with the belief that food can be an agent of change in distressed communities.
From the very beginning — as our founder Chef José Andrés witnessed the terrible health and environmental impacts of preparing meals on open wood and coal fueled fires — Clean Cooking has been a core program. To date they have built or rehabilitated 150 school and other community kitchens in Haiti and Guatemala and aim to bring this effort to other countries soon.
