Founded in 2010 by Chef José Andrés, World Central Kitchen (WCK) uses the power of food to heal communities and strengthen economies in times of crisis and beyond. A non-partisan effort, WCK’s #ChefsForThePolls program recruits local restaurants and food establishments to bring meals to voters and engages with community-driven solutions that provide fresh meals – and also keep small businesses open in the midst of a health and economic crisis. Chefs For The Polls is a non-partisan effort that will feed people of all political parties and beliefs. Meals are not offered as an incentive or reward for voting; rather, meals will be available at polling sites for anyone who is hungry.
