I had the pleasure of meeting chef Jose Andres two months ago at a conference. He’s a nice man and a dynamic speaker who brings passion to his desire to use his platform to spur social enterprise and cultural connection.
It’s all the more poignant to read about his efforts in supporting hurricane relief in Houston and Puerto Rico. Indeed, the ability of chef’s to mobilize food supplies and prepare food in bulk and under pressure can contribute to aid in the right circumstances.
José Andrés is amazing. Really impressed by what he’s accomplished. https://t.co/Qj4qgolKRc

Today, I donated to his World Central Kitchen, because I believe not only in its mission to mobilize a network of chefs to empower people in health, education, jobs and social enterprise, but also in its ability to actually carry out that mission on a meaningful scale.
