As Puerto Ricans struggle following Hurricane Maria, and US aid seems in short supply, celebrity chef José Andrés is stepping in—serving more meals than even the Red Cross.

When an earthquake rocked Haiti in 2010, chef José Andrés felt compelled to do something useful. Andrés, who is known for his jovial personality and his equally playful cuisine at restaurants like Jaleo and Zaytinya in Washington, DC, could easily stay in the comfy circles of the upscale culinary world—he’s a James Beard-awarded ‘Outstanding Chef’ and earlier this year, he was presented with the Lifetime Achievement Award by the International Association of Culinary Professionals.

But the restless, globe-trotting Andrés has never been content to confine himself to gleaming kitchens with multi-burner stoves and well-stocked walk-ins, and so he founded World Central Kitchen, a non-profit that unites chefs and deploys them to communities in need—think ‘Chefs Without Borders.’
