"Thanks to supporters like you, World Central Kitchen has served tens of millions of nourishing meals to people affected by disasters and crises across the world—from hurricanes to wildfires to violent conflict zones, to a global pandemic, our fight to feed the hungry has taken us more places than we ever could have imagined.
On February 24, Russia launched a large-scale attack on neighboring Ukraine, invading the country on several fronts. As a result, hundreds of thousands of Ukrainian families are fleeing their homes in search of safety. Working at a 24-hour pedestrian border crossing in southern Poland, WCK began serving hot, nourishing meals immediately. Now, we've expanded our efforts to serve accommodation centers in Poland as well as in Romania, Moldova, and other locations supporting refugees. WCK is also partnering with restaurants inside of Ukraine to get hot meals to anyone in need.
Your support will help us continue to use the power of food to heal communities and strengthen economies while serving as a beacon of hope for people in times of crisis. We look forward to continuing to work with you to nourish, uplift, and inspire.
Join me in fulfilling the inspiring words of John Steinbeck: 'Wherever there’s a fight so hungry people can eat, we will be there.'
