World Central Kitchen Provides 4 Million Meals to Ukrainian Refugees So Far

José Andrés, the creator of World Central Kitchen (WCK), revealed that his non-profit organization has served more than 4 million meals to refugees since Russia invaded Ukraine more than a month ago.

According to Andrés, who was featured on CNN’s “State of the Union,” WCK delivers more than 290,000 meals daily at more than 1,000 venues in six nations.

“Inside Ukraine, we are in 21 cities. Obviously, Lviv has become our headquarters inside Ukraine,” Andrés explained, “But we are delivering food every day to places like Odessa, Kyiv and other places.”

Andrés also praised the volunteer workers, dubbed as “food fighters,” for their efforts to feed refugees.

Andrés informed President Biden that the Ukrainian people “need all the help we can provide them.”

“The temperatures were freezing. Women and children were walking across the border. And they were being welcomed at least with a message of, we care. We are going to take care of you. You are not going to be alone in this dark hour.” added Andrés.

President Biden applauded Andrés for his efforts to help refugees in times of crisis.

In a tweet, Biden said, “I want to thank my friend Chef José Andrés, his team at World Central Kitchen, and everyone on the ground for all they’re doing to support Ukrainian refugees.”

WCK hit the million mark last March 13.
