A crumb from Wednesday's riot in the Capitol

 Chef Jose Andres owns a restaurant called Jaleo in Washington, D.C. In the past, he's fed pandemic heroes and first responders during natural disasters. This week he helped feed National Guard members and law enforcement responding to Wednesday's deadly riot at the Capitol. 

Since a curfew was imposed to increase security, Andres said he knew these hard-working men and women would not have a lot of options to eat, so he drove around Washington and collected about 120 pizzas. Later, early on Thursday, he opened his restaurant and was seen making eggs, sandwiches and pasta. His non-profit organization, World Kitchen, said the team was able to feed about 700 people.
