This weekend, longtime friend and partner of The Archewell Foundation, Chef José Andrés announced the upcoming release of “The World Central Kitchen Cookbook: Feeding Humanity, Feeding Hope.”
The cookbook is a captivating collection of stories and recipes from renowned chefs, local cooks, and friends of the global nonprofit, which feeds communities impacted by natural disasters and humanitarian crises. All author proceeds will support WCK’s emergency response efforts, and Meghan, The Duchess of Sussex is proud to have contributed a recipe.
In March 2021, The Duchess sent a Lemon Olive Oil cake, which is included in the book, to a group of female restaurateurs who partnered with WCK to provide meals to their community during the pandemic. Alongside the cake, she included a letter that read in part:
“Sometimes we overlook how much it matters to express thanks and show appreciation. Perhaps we realize now more than ever that fundamental human moments, like enjoying a meal together, fill us up with more than just food (even if that food is delicious!). To that point, we hope you enjoy the offering we baked for you—a small token of thanks, from our home to yours. Our hope with this effort is to show that, when we all participate, even the smallest actions can have a ripple effect. Even individual actions can impact the whole of us.”
Over the past few years, The Archewell Foundation has partnered closely with World Central Kitchen in a shared mission to create more compassionate, strong and healthy communities. Most recently, The Archewell Foundation supported the development of four community relief centers across the globe, and their meal distribution efforts in Ukraine.
