José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen Is Helping To Feed Texans Following Winter Storm Uri

Over 2,000 plates have been distributed in less than a week.

Chef José Andrés is working with his nonprofit organization World Central Kitchen to help feed Texas residents as they continue to be affected by Winter Storm Uri. Last Wednesday, World Central Kitchen landed in Dallas and has since been teaming up with local restaurants to provide food to vulnerable communities in the Dallas and Fort Worth, TX, areas as they've dealt with power outages and other challenges.

Notably, the organization collaborated with Kwench, a juice bar, and Tupelo Honey, a Southern restaurant. These restaurants helped in World Central Kitchen's goal to provide food to senior citizen centers and shelters in the area. According to EATER, the Wicked Butcher in Fort Worth prepared plates of chicken and vegetables and in Houston, World Central Kitchen helped to distribute 2,000 plates of chicken wings, sandwiches, and other meals.

For those unfamiliar with the work done by World Central Kitchen, the organization founded by Andrés works to provide food to communities in need, especially during natural disasters. During the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, World Central Kitchen has helped give food to those in need while supporting local restaurants through closures. The nonprofit, non-governmental organization accepts donations on a one-time or monthly basis.

If you're not in the area and still want to help Texas residents recover from challenges stemming from the winter storm, there are quite a few places accepting donations including national organizations like the American Red Cross, and more local food banks and food donation groups that work in the Dallas, Houston, and Fort Worth areas.
