WCK’s Chef Relief team has responded to the civil unrest in Haiti by activating our Culinary School to provide hot meals to the most vulnerable communities. Violent protests which have rocked the capitol city of Port-Au-Prince since early February have made it difficult for communities to obtain food & water.
Our culinary school has remained open during the crisis and members of WCK’s Chef Relief Team have joined forces with our culinary students to provide deliveries of hot meals to 7 delivery sites including local orphanages, schools, and hospitals. Since we started on Friday, we’ve already served over 4,000 hot meals.
In addition to providing quality meals to those impacted by the crisis, WCK’s Chef Relief Team has been training our culinary students on how to be prepared for other disaster activations. In addition to preparing recipes on a mass feeding scale, the team has been showing students how to prep, pack, and deliver meals wherever they are needed.
“Having been with WCK through so many activations, it’s good to know that if something happens in Haiti, our WCK Culinary School will be there and ready to respond,” Tim Kilcoyne, our Director of Chef Operations, remarked. “Not only are these brilliant chefs-in-training, but they already have a huge heart for their communities and now have the skills to step up in a time of crisis. It really feels like our work has come full circle.”
