José Andrés is currently in India with fellow chefs Sanjeev Kapoor and Manish Gupta of Indian catering company TajSATS to help hospitals and frontline workers during the current devastating wave of Covid-19 infections in the country. They are currently operating in Mumbai and other cities in connection with Andrés’s non-profit World Central Kitchen, which he founded in 2010 to provide meals to people affected by disasters around the world. The meals are prepared and delivered through TajSATS.
The chefs are providing meals to hospitals in Mumbai, Ahmedabad, Bengaluru, Goa, Hyderabad, Kolkata, New Delhi, and Varanasi. Andrés shared his latest efforts in a video earlier today, in which he talks about “adapting to the situation by the day, by the hour” and asks the busy kitchen workers behind him to wave and “say hi to the world.”
