World Central Kitchen on the Front Lines After Hurricane Dorian

Chef Jose Andres’ World Central Kitchen gained fame for helping feed those affected in Puerto Rico’s hurricane aftermath and destruction. Once again, this organization has led the way with relief efforts, landing in the Bahamas just before Hurricane Dorian and starting to help immediately after the storm moved away.

When it looked as though Palm Beach County might have seen the brunt of the storm, the WCK visited West Palm Beach’s The Regional Kitchen & Public House to scope out space for relief efforts here. Luckily, those weren’t needed, and luckily this organization exists. And as always, we are grateful to have Chef Lindsay Autry and her restaurant in our area.

“Although World Central Kitchen redirected their efforts to the Bahamas relief,” Autry says, “we would have been more than happy to help facilitate the relief efforts on the front lines of Palm Beach County.

“We were prepared to produce at least 30,000 meals for those in need locally and were honored to have them in our kitchen for a few days. Being able to give back and be part of the solution is the greatest reward. Fortunately, our area was spared from the powerful damage that other areas sustained by Dorian’s path.”
