Chef Andrés and Team Come to the Rescue in Texas

Fresh off feeding thousands of National Guard troops who were protecting the U.S. Capitol, Chef José Andrés of Bethesda took his World Central Kitchen to Houston, where power slowly is returning to millions of residents who have been living without heat and electricity for several days.

Like he has done during so many national disasters since 2010, Andres is helping feed as many people as he can. He partnered with Burns BBQ to make more than 700 chopped beef sandwiches that are being delivered to Houston seniors.

According to Houston’s utility Center Point, about 47,000 Houston area homes were without power Thursday morning, down from 1.4 million the day before.

At the same time, World Central Kitchen volunteers also are delivering weekly food kits to Caracas, Venezuela for people to make their own meals.
