When Hurricane Maria struck, José Andrés's World Central Kitchen project fed more people in Puerto Rico than any other relief group.
When Hurricane Maria devastated the island of Puerto Rico in September 2017, Michelin starred chef José Andrés didn't hesitate to act. He flew in, called on his local contacts, and together they rolled up their sleeves and immediately began cooking for the many hungry people. What followed was an unprecedented feat; a total of 3.4 million meals was prepared. He tells Emily Thomas how he did it and why they were able to act so quickly.

Local journalist Cristina del Mar showed him round. (Photo: Newsday's Julian Keane interviews Punta Santiago residents/ Credits: BBC)
