Meals for PR Hurricane Victims

The Diva cannot recall finding a relevant article in the Food section of the Washington Post, so today is a first. See: Jose Andres’s Riveting “We Fed An Island” Called for a Revolution in Disaster Relief.

José Andrés’s riveting ‘We Fed an Island’ calls for a revolution in disaster relief
with “We Fed an Island,” chef-and-restaurateur-turned-relief worker José Andrés doesn’t just tell the story about how he and a fleet of volunteers cooked millions of meals for the Americans left adrift on Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. He exposes what he views as an outdated top-down, para-military-type model of disaster relief that proved woefully ineffective on an island knocked flat by the Category 4 hurricane.

Andrés also points plenty of fingers. At President Trump. At the Federal Emergency Management Agency. At the American Red Cross. At Puerto Rican politicians who let their own people down. No one is spared Andrés’s critical eye, including the chef himself.
