About our World Central Kitchen (WCK) news

Latest news on World Central Kitchen (WCK), providing comprehensive coverage of the NGO's global disaster relief efforts, partnerships with local chefs, and humanitarian aid in crisis zones like Ukraine and Gaza.

Founded in 2010 by renowned chef José Andrés, World Central Kitchen is a not-for-profit organisation that provides meals in the wake of natural disasters and humanitarian crises worldwide. With a mission to be a first responder and collaborate with local chefs to address hunger immediately following a disaster, WCK has served millions of meals across countries such as Haiti, Puerto Rico, Ukraine, and the United States.

Recent developments highlight WCK's vital work in crisis-stricken regions. In 2022, the organisation swiftly responded to the Russian invasion of Ukraine, setting up kitchens on the country's borders to feed displaced citizens. WCK also played a crucial role in providing relief following the devastating 2023 Turkey–Syria earthquake. Since early 2024, the NGO has been at the forefront of addressing the Gaza humanitarian crisis, delivering over 32 million meals as of March 2024 through airdrops and maritime deliveries in partnership with Proactiva Open Arms.

The NGO's work is rooted in the vision of its founder, José Andrés, who has been at the forefront of disaster relief efforts since the 2010 Haiti earthquake. Andrés and WCK have garnered international recognition for their humanitarian work, receiving accolades such as the James Beard Foundation's Humanitarian of the Year Award and being named one of TIME magazine's 100 most influential people.

As the world continues to grapple with natural disasters and humanitarian crises, staying informed about the critical work of organisations like WCK is more important than ever.
