We have a simple mission: to make sure that food is an agent of change around the world.
World Central Kitchen is a catalyst of change through chef-driven programs that focus on improving health, education and employment. Using our chef-expertise, we will continue to invest in safe cooking methods, healthy school meals, and culinary training – empowering communities and strengthening economies around the world.
I am so grateful to our friends who have joined the mission of World Central Kitchen. With your support, we will continue to grow each year, and our smart solutions will continue to inspire communities around the world.
World Central Kitchen is a social startup of chefs. And, as chefs, we are always balancing creativity with the bottom-line. This is what makes World Central Kitchen unique and enables us to find smart solutions to hunger and poverty.
Using the expertise of some of the world’s best chefs, we bring innovative ideas to communities in Cambodia, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Nicaragua, Zambia, and the USA. Our chefs pack up their knives, hop on a plane, and are ready to build, train, and inspire.
I am excited for the future of World Central Kitchen. Together, with your help, and the expertise of our chefs, we are poised to bring our smart solutions to dedicated communities in new countries.
