Today’s Solutions: May 22, 2022

Celebrity chef José Andrés emerged as quite the hero after Hurricane Dorian pummeled the Bahamas. His organization, World Central Kitchen (WCK), was prepared for the storm and prepared meals for the thousands of people who were affected by the devastating storm.

This wasn’t the first time WCK has done such a thing; the organization has responded to 19 different disasters so far this year and has served more than 10 million meals since its inception in 2010. With the climate crisis threatening to create more natural disasters, Andrés is looking to capitalize on the attention received during Hurricane Dorian and expand WCK to make it even more effective.

At the UN Climate Week in New York City, the organization is announcing its Climate Disaster Fund. The plan is to eventually raise $50 million toward disaster response efforts, $5 million of which has already been provided by funders. Some of this funding is already being used to provide meals to people in the Bahamas. The rest will go toward WCK’s future relief efforts, which could be needed soon considering hurricane season is far from over.
