Chef Jose Andres has made headlines before, feeding people in disaster-stricken areas. In the past, his World Central Kitchen has cooked millions of meals for hurricane and wildfire victims. Now he's feeding federal employees who receive no pay because of the partial government shutdown.
His non-profit has opened a kitchen on Pennsylvania Avenue in Washington, DC., not far from the White House, which serves free hot meals from 11 a.m. until 6 p.m. to furloughed workers with ID, and their families. "We believe no person should have to go through the pain of not knowing what to feed their children, so we have opened a kitchen," said Andres.
