The organization, founded by internationally known Chef Jose Andres, has set up mobile kitchens in Abaco, Grand Bahama and Nassau, to cook and prepare 20,000 meals a day and feed Bahamian residents in shelters and in damaged homes. Andres is working in collaboration with local Bahamian chefs, Tim & Rebecca Tibbitts, owners of the Flying Fish GastroBar in Freeport.
“Together, they are committed to doing whatever it takes to get food to the people who need it most, be it by boat, helicopter or plane. Donations of all sizes are what is fueling this amazing work,” says Essence Corp.
The WCK aims to provide meals to the most vulnerable people in the developing world. Last year, WCK activated in response to 13 disasters — some of them natural, and some man-made. From serving children in the shelters on our border with Mexico to making deliveries by lamplight to those keeping watch over beaches in Indonesia.

In addition to the above, Essence Corp is also directly helping its own 11 Beauty Advisers located in the Bahamas, who were impacted by Dorian.
