FOREWORD BY LIN-MANUEL MIRANDA AND LUIS A. MIRANDA, JR.
The true story of how a group of chefs fed hundreds of thousands of hungry Americans after Hurricane Maria and touched the hearts of many more
Chef José Andrés arrived in Puerto Rico four days after Hurricane Maria ripped through the island. The economy used to be destroyed and for most of the people there used to be no clean water, no food, no power, no gas, and no way to keep up a correspondence with the outdoor world.
Andrés addressed the humanitarian crisis the only way he knew how: by feeding people, one hot meal at a time. From serving sancocho with his friend José Enrique at Enrique’s ravaged restaurant in San Juan to eventually cooking 100,000 meals a day at more than a dozen kitchens across the island, Andrés and his team fed hundreds of thousands of people, including with massive paellas made to serve thousands of people on my own.. At the same time, they also confronted a crisis with deep roots, in addition to the broken and wasteful system that helps keep one of the vital biggest charities and NGOs in business.
Based on Andrés’s insider’s take in addition to on meetings, messages, and conversations he had whilst in Puerto Rico, We Fed an Island movingly describes how a network of community kitchens activated real change and tells an abnormal story of hope in the face of disasters both natural and man-made, offering suggestions for how to address a crisis like this at some point.
Beyond that, a portion of the proceeds from the book will be donated to the Chef Relief Network of World Central Kitchen for efforts in Puerto Rico and beyond.
