Following the devastating wildfires in Southern California, World Central Kitchen has partnered with L.A. Kitchen to provide meals to firefighters, first responders, and the hundreds of families who have been displaced. Since Thursday, #ChefsForCalifornia have successfully prepared and delivered over 9,000 meals to Red Cross shelters and first responders.

World Central Kitchen and L.A. Kitchen have activated a second kitchen at San Buenaventura Mission and will continue to assess needs from shelters for the displaced, and to provide meals for the hundreds of brave first responders and firefighters who are tirelessly working to keep Southern California safe.
