You’ve heard how chef José Andrés simply started cooking for those affected by the 2010 earthquake in Haiti and founded World Central Kitchen. His organization rose to global prominence by feeding people in Puerto Rico after 2017’s hurricane Maria. Now Andrés and his organization are in Ukraine, providing meals by the millions for displaced people and others who have been affected by the Russian invasion -34 million meals so far. How is World Central Kitchen able to scale up so much?
The main method of doing that is to use use local chefs and local kitchens. There are plenty of cooks and restauranteurs in Ukraine who aren’t getting much paying business these days, and they want to help the war effort. Funding them through the organization puts dollars into the local economy and props up suppliers as well as the restaurant workers. But making a meal for thousands of people at a time requires some specialized equipment, like cambros, combi ovens, and military water heaters. Read how these and other appliances help World Central Kitchen keep the meals coming. -via Damn Interesting
