World Central Kitchen at the White House’s SXSL Festival

October 4th, 2016

World Central Kitchen was invited by the White House to host an exhibit for their SXSL festival on how clean cookstoves can change the world. SXSL (South by South Lawn) was a festival focused on how art, ideas, and action are being used to tackle the world’s toughest challenges.

At the event, we revealed the impact a clean cookstove can have on the environment and the health of a community.

Our founder, José Andrés, along with chefs Victor Albisu (Del Campo, Taco Bamba), and Erik Bruner-Yang (Maketto, Honeycomb Grocer, Toki Underground) showcased nine clean and improved cookstoves to the 2,000 attendees.

Using the sun, small amounts of solid fuel, or denatured alcohol, the clean cookstoves cooked brownies, croissants, cookies, and potatoes showing the efficiency and range of use of these innovative stoves.

World Central Kitchen has converted over 100 schools in Haiti to clean cookstoves and are looking forward to continuing our efforts in schools in Haiti and beyond. Contact us to help by emailing Brian MacNair at bmacnair@worldcentralkitchen.org
