Like you, we are saddened by the devastation and loss left by Hurricane Dorian, and looking for ways we can best assist the people of the Bahamas. Many of you have asked us how you can contribute and we’ve been working hard to find meaningful ways to help. Here’s what you can do:
Donate to World Central Kitchen
World Central Kitchen — founded by Chef José Andrés in 2010 — arrived in Nassau ahead of Hurricane Dorian to prepare for a massive relief effort, knowing tens of thousands of people would be in need. WCK is serving more than 20,000 meals per day in Nassau, Abaco and Grand Bahama. Donations to WCK will help support relief efforts to provide hot, nutritious meals.
