Chef José Andrés and his charity have been feeding people for years especially in times of crisis while many are at a loss of what to do. With this, they have received a lot of praise for the noble cause they tirelessly get done. Now, he is transforming his 5-star restaurants to makeshift food kitchens in order to feed the people in the middle of the COVID-19 global crisis.
He has announced the indefinite closure of his restaurants to the general public in accordance with the government’s request, except for the eight famous restaurants in Washington D.C. and New York City. These locations will be made into soup kitchens to serve quality food to families and workers greatly affected by the nationwide closure of establishments.
Their takeout meals cost $7 per serving, but “those who cannot afford to pay, we will welcome as well,” the well-known celebrity chef said.
The improvised soup kitchens started serving meals earlier this week from 12pm to 5pm. Also, his employees will still get compensated for the days off from work in the first two weeks.
World Central Kitchen, the acclaimed chef’s charity, has also provided food for the people affected by the novel coronavirus, including those passengers in quarantine and staffers aboard the ship Grand Princess.
They have served meals as well to thousands of students and families affected by the closing of schools from Little Rock, Arkansas all the way to San Francisco.
