Chef Jose Andres is a true inspiration


I started following Tony Bourdain in 2001 since I love his attitude and that is where I first learned of Jose. Tony traveled with him on several episodes of No Reservations, Parts Unknown and The Layover. He has helped people in Haiti in 2010, Puerto Rico and all over the world since. Amd they both hate tRump...that automatically gets 2 thumbs up from me!


"When the Earth opened from within in 2010 and swallowed large parts of Haiti, José Andrés wanted to help feed those Haitians in need, who were suddenly without homes or a semblance of their lives before the monstrous earthquake devoured it all.

When COVID-19 ravaged India throughout the summer of 2021, Andrés ran toward the epicenter and, together with the nonprofit he created following the 7.0 earthquake in Haiti, World Central Kitchen, he served healthy and nutritious food to 840,000 hospital and other front-line workers. More recently, Andrés was there in Kentucky after a series of tornadoes left hundreds of miles of destruction in their wake. Andrés worked with local food trucks and organizations to ensure survivors had freshly cooked meals.

Since that first venture in Haiti, Andrés’ organization has fed families in countries spanning the globe from Cambodia to Zambia.

Andrés knows the power of food."

I hope he keeps working in Gaza, but he might have trouble recruiting volunteers now since the IDF seems out of control.

for Jose and WCK. People are pissed off and that may drive more workers to join the cause.
