Chef José Andrés ‘founded World Central Kitchen in Ukraine to provide fresh meals to refugees

UKRAINE – Thousands of people have fled Ukraine since Russia launched Thursday’s attack and Chef José Andrés, founder of World Central Kitchen, is working to deliver meals to the refugees.

Andrés, who works for a nonprofit to deliver meals during natural disasters, posted a message on Twitter Friday afternoon saying his team delivered the meals.

He wrote: “It pains me to see Ukraine being attacked. “We must come together as a force for good!”

In a photo posted Sunday morning, chefs are seen preparing fresh meals in Odessa, Ukraine.

The United Nations refugee agency on Sunday said some 368,000 people had fled the country, many to bordering countries such as Romania, Poland, Hungary, Moldova and Slovakia.

At Romania’s Siret border crossing, where thousands of Ukrainians have entered, government workers race to distribute basic amenities donated from around the country.

Meanwhile, residents and businesses are pooling resources to give refugees everything they need.

In the southeastern Polish city of Przemysl, just a few kilometers from the border with Ukraine, hundreds of people waited in a parking lot to help refugees being rounded up by authorities from the border.

“I’m so glad I came and I want to thank everyone who is organizing this event,” said a young Ukrainian who had just arrived. “This really feels great when people are waiting for us in your country.”

Moldova, which shares a long border with Ukraine, is also seeing a large influx of refugees. Authorities said that since Thursday, 70,080 Ukrainian nationals have entered the small country of about 3.5 million people.
