“Without food security for all, the United States will never fully recover from the pandemic,” says- Chef josé Andrés

In an opinion article on The New York Times published on Turning Points, Chef José Andrés founder of World Central Kitchen, an organization fighting against hunger across the globe.

Chef Andrés has called on states agency to

“rather than relying on private donors to fund charities and nonprofits, we can spend federal funds to get our cafes and restaurants back on their feet while the Federal Emergency Management Agency pays for real food programs. We can target our subsidies toward smaller farms and farmers selling healthier foods to their local markets. More than a century after Upton Sinclair’s revelations about the squalid conditions of meatpacking plants in Chicago, we can improve life for our essential workers not only in the fields but in those same plants today.”

In a backup tweet Chef Andrés said, “It’s not just that our priorities are wrong—food is not a national policy priority at all. Food is the best way to strengthen community, rebuild economy, heal planet, improve health!

We can put people back to work preparing it. We can put lives back together by fighting hunger.”
