Coach Gerhard has always admired Chef José Andrés commitment to providing relief to areas that need meals for people in need. José Andrés’ World Central Kitchen (WCK) is providing hundreds of thousands of nourishing meals for people in need in Ukraine every single day. They are serving meals at shelters, hospitals, transit hubs, and more. Additionally, World Central Kitchen teams are working to get bulk food product into communities under constant attack. Since their founding, WCK has provided tens of millions of fresh, nourishing meals for communities in need around the world.
#ChefsForUkraine: Across Ukraine, WCK continues to expand their efforts and adapt to the ongoing situation, they’re bringing hundreds of thousands of daily meals and food kits to over 2,000 distribution sites including in recently liberated cities, isolated communities where there is little to no other humanitarian assistance, locations supporting displaced families, and neighborhoods caught in the crossfire of the invasion.
A missile attack in mid April hit a residential area in Kharkiv, Ukraine, injuring several civilians. Among the buildings destroyed was a restaurant that served as a relief kitchen for World Central Kitchen. Four people working there were injured in the attack but all have been released from the hospital. Andrés says his World Central Kitchen delivers millions of pounds of food each day, but the complexity on the ground forces them to adapt quickly.

Also, our friend Dan Kellner with Brooklyn Bridge Fencing Club is also fundraising for Ukrainian charities. Coach Dan’s great-grandparents emigrated to the United States before WWI and Dan’s coach, Simon Gershon, emigrated from Ukraine in 1992.
Brooklyn Bridge Fencing is proud to support Ukraine with their “Slava Ukraini!” t-shirt, which translates to “Glory to Ukraine!”, the traditional Ukrainian battle-cry. All proceeds of t-shirt sales will benefit the non-profit, @razom.for.ukraine and other Ukrainian charities.
