Under the pummeling rains of North Carolina floods, celebrated chef José Andrés tells a reporter, “We don’t only feed people, we create systems.” Fierce as he is humble, steady as he is slapdash, chef José and his nonprofit World Central Kitchen respond to humanitarian emergencies with one thing in mind—fresh and hot food for those affected. From the Haiti earthquake of 2010, to Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico, to food relief during the COVID-19 pandemic, veteran filmmaker Ron Howard’s We Feed People chronicles the intense evolution of World Central Kitchen over a 12-year period. The stakes are high as José and his team collaboratively map out culinary care across devastated communities. And the work is not without challenges, as the team trudges through bureaucratic hoops and crumbling infrastructure, post-disaster safety and accessibility, and issues of cultural sensitivity. Against the increasingly present backdrop of crises here in BC and globally, We Feed People is an insightful look at the power of strategic mobilization around one of our most basic needs. -DB
