Manje pou Mozambique [a WCK in Beira fundraiser]
May 8, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm
On the eve of May 8th, join us as we lend our support to World Central Kitchen (WCK) and their work in Beira, Mozambique, where they’ve teamed up with local chefs and volunteers to help feed hundred of thousands of people impacted by Cyclone Idai.
The night will include hearing directly from WCK team members and enjoying Mozambican dishes (cooked by chef Don Berto) incorporated into PAP’s regular menu especially for the event. PAP will contribute a portion of all food and drink sales during the event to WCK, so come on through and “Manje pou Mozambique” – eat, drink and support WCK’s extraordinary work in Mozambique!
But wait, who exactly is WCK you ask? World Central Kitchen was founded in 2010 by Chef José Andrés following the devastating earthquake in Haiti. WCK is a non-profit organization of chefs creating smart solutions to hunger and poverty in the areas of disaster relief, health, jobs and workforce development, and food security. Since its founding, WCK has served more than 10 million meals to victims of natural disasters and other crises around the globe. In addition to disaster response, World Central Kitchen continues to operate long-term programs in Puerto Rico, Haiti, and Nicaragua, helping communities develop sustainable food systems.
The World Central Kitchen team landed in Beira days after Cyclone Idai slammed into southern Africa. More than a month later, the team has served over 273,000 meals to the cyclone’s victims, supporting camps set up to house displaced families, schools, and clinics. With the support of local volunteers and partners like the South African Chefs Association and the Rockefeller Foundation, the Chef Relief Team was able to provide 10,000 hot, nutritious meals a day.
