Save The Date: June 16, 2014
All Proceeds Benefit World Central Kitchen
Last Saturday at the South Beach Food and Wine Festival in Miami, our founder, José Andrés, hosted a golf tournament at Turnberry Isle Miami, one of the best golf courses in the nation. Professional athletes and celebrity chefs joined together to golf in support of World Central Kitchen.
We are thankful for the community of nearly 100 individuals who generously supported our mission to provide smart solutions to hunger and poverty around the world. We would also like to thank our title sponsor, Personal Luxury Resorts and Hotels, and our corporate sponsors: Belvedere Vodka, Coravin, FIJI Water, Montage Resorts and Hotels, Nat Sherman Cigars, Patron and Turberry Isle Miami for their generosity.

Last month on Twitter, we asked you what your favorite kitchen memory was. Our inbox flowed with great memories of our followers that shaped a part of their culinary journey. Here are some of our favorite:
2013 was a big year for World Central Kitchen. In 2014 WCK resolves to…
Help Communities Feed Themselves
Our Smart School Kitchen will begin Phase 2, a chicken farm and a community garden, that will help the community grow and sell food while helping to make the school sustainable.
Create a Skilled Workforce
At the World Central Kitchen Culinary School at Elie du Bois, young girls will be trained as skilled chefs and entrepreneurs – empowering the girls and strengthening the food service workforce in Haiti.
Do Good Business
As our orphanage bakery Boulanjri Beni continues to grow, we will help create more revenue streams by re-creating their roadside Fish Restaurant – Pwason Beni – and marketing a variety of products with a solid business plan.
Continue to CHANGE LIVES and FEED HOPE
Stay tuned for SMART SOLUTIONS to hunger and poverty in other parts of the world in 2014!
Thanks for helping us make all of this possible!
Please make a contribution to our future success by making a year-end gift to support more SMART SOLUTIONS in 2014, using the power of food to change lives throughout the world.
From all of us at World Central Kitchen,
Happy New Year!
This cycle of poverty can be broken. World Central Kitchen is dedicated to changing the lives of young girls in Port-au-Prince, Haiti through education, empowerment, and jobs.
Make a contribution this Holiday season to support the World Central Kitchen Culinary School at Elie du Bois in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. Not only will we train these young girls for jobs in the hospitality industry, but we will help them feel secure in their careers and confident about their future.
This Holiday Season – Give the Gift that keeps on giving – A FUTURE!
This week, Chef José Andrés visited our first project, Boulanjri Beni (Blessed Bakery), at the Zanmi Beni orphanage in Port-au-Prince – and taught their team a few versions of a tilapia fish sandwich.
The orphanage, which has its own tilapia farm, will sell the sandwhich, grilled fish meals, and breads from Boulanjri Beni at their roadside restaurant.
This holiday season, please make a contribution to support these smart solutions and help empower our baking team while bringing in revenue for the orphans.
More than 4 million people die every year from complications due to “open fire”, “solid fuel” cooking.
As Culinary Ambassador of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, José Andrés is leading World Central Kitchen on a mission to improve cooking conditions and food safety in a number of developing countries.
Make a contribution today and help us save lives as we embark on a “Clean Cooking” training program that will have a profound effect on those cooking in home kitchens, school kitchens, street vending and even industrial kitchens.
Help us save lives and change the future of cooking in the developing world. Smart Solutions!
This honey is produced, bottled and sold by a cooperative of 21 women who spread profits back into the village’s agricultural center, while at the same time uplifting the quality of life for their immediate and extended families.
Every dollar earned by the 21 Women Honey Cooperative supports crucial elements of a successful future - living space, children, education, and healthy meals.
World Central Kitchen is actively supporting the production, marketing and sales of honey produced by this small group in the mountains of the Dominican Republic, and is quickly seeing changes in living conditions.
Support the 21 Women Honey Cooperative this Holiday Season by making a contribution today, and help Feed Hope and Change Lives.
Over the past year, World Central Kitchen has made life changing investments in Haiti, one of the poorest countries in the world. We’re proud of the launch of our Smart Kitchen at Palmiste Tampe, Haiti.
What is a smart kitchen? Healthier cooking methods through the use of clean cookstoves; Healthier meals through the incorporation of fresh vegetables; sustainable goals through the addition of a community garden and chicken farm.
In this mountain village in Haiti, the community’s main focus, every day, is providing ONE meal to their family. Through World Central Kitchen’s smart school kitchen, we are able to provide a meal which acts as the impetus for these children to go to school.
This Thanksgiving, as you enjoy a meal with your family, please think of those less fortunate and make a donation that will go directly to provide a healthy meal to the children of Palmiste Tampe.
Smart Kitchen = Healthy Meals = Education
World Central Kitchen’s new school canteen has opened this week in Palmiste Tampe, located in the mountains of Haiti. WCK, in partnership with CESAL, is feeding 148 children a traditional lunch of rice-n-beans, soon to be complimented with healthy vegetables grown in our community garden. It is no surprise that attendance has doubled at school. Because of a daily meal and a bright new place to cook and eat, the community is feeling good about themselves, while their children eat and learn.
