Construction completed at Archewell Foundation and World Central Kitchen’s first Community Relief Center
As part of their joint philanthropic partnership, The Archewell Foundation and Chef José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen have teamed up to develop a series of four Community Relief Centers in regions of the world prone to climate disasters. Construction of the first of the Centers, based in the Commonwealth country of Dominica, was completed in early 2021—giving local communities access to critical support. The next Center will be built in Puerto Rico. In times of crisis, these Centers can be quickly activated as emergency response kitchens, and through calmer times they can serve as food distribution hubs, schools, clinics, or community gathering spaces for families.
