José Andrés is not only a great chef, and the developer of a number of fabulous restaurants, but he's also the founder of World Central Kitchen, a remarkable organization for feeding victims of wars and natural disasters worldwide. Recent operations by WCK have taken place in response to the hurricane in Acapulco, the devastating fire in Maui, the wars in Ukraine and Gaza, and many other locations.
