World Central Kitchen’s founder and mentor, José Andrés, was recently awarded the Daily Point of Light Award, which celebrates the power of the individual to spark change and improve the world. The award, presented in Miami, recognizes Jose’s work in finding “smart solutions to hunger and poverty”, domestically at DC Central Kitchen and now in the developing world with World Central Kitchen.
“I feel blessed that I have had a good life, but it is tragic that so many suffer simply because of where they were born,” Andrés says. “I feel it’s my duty to help as many as possible, and to empower as many as possible.”
World Central Kitchen embraces these ideals as we move forward with projects in Haiti, the Dominican Republic, Zambia, and beyond.
