The Goal:

World Central Kitchen will work to introduce environmentally sustainable cooking fuels such as solar kitchens and liquid petroleum gas (LPG) to developing areas where access to affordable technology is limited.


The Program:
World Central Kitchen launched the Haiti Breathes project. This project targets schools in Port au Prince and surrounding areas to:

  • Convert their energy dependency from charcoal to liquid petroleum gas
  • Invest in the equipment and training for 100 schools
  • Train hundreds of school cooks on food safety and sanitation (Sink to Stove)
  • Utilize the Chef Network for training expertise
