From the James Beard Foundation:
We’re thrilled to announce that José Andrés, multiple James Beard Award–winning chef, owner of ThinkFoodGroup, and founder of World Central Kitchen, will receive the 2018 Humanitarian of the Year Award. A committed food and anti-hunger advocate, Andrés—together with his team at World Central Kitchen—served over 3 million meals to communities in need in Puerto Rico following the devastation of Hurricane Maria.
Andrés is named the Humanitarian honoree as we announce this year’s theme, “Rise,” which celebrates the community of chefs and industry leaders who rise to the occasion—whether to feed those in need, to stand up for what they believe in, to support their local communities, or to express their personal stories through their cooking.

Congratulation, Chef Andrés
