WE FED AN ISLAND: THE TRUE STORY OF REBUILDING PUERTO RICO, ONE MEAL AT A TIME
We Fed an Island: The True Story of Rebuilding Puerto Rico, One Meal at a Time, is an inspirational book, but it’s also an angry one, a call to arms for reform of how the government and other organisations respond to disasters. Andrés has plenty of experience at that, having been involved in relief operations after such catastrophes as Hurricane Sandy in 2012 and the massive 2010 earthquake in Haiti. That led to his founding a food relief organisation, World Central Kitchen. Disaster relief is not Andrés’ career. He is a James Beard award-winning chef who operates more than two dozen acclaimed restaurants in the US and elsewhere. Disaster relief is clearly a passion for him, though, and he writes about Puerto Rico’s post-maria suffering as a heart-breaking example of how not to do it.
