Jose Andres’ World Central Kitchen is coming to Orlando on Wednesday and Thursday to provide home-cooked meals for families in need. 

Andres’ team was most recently in Newark, New Jersey and Queens, New York. They will be joined by local chefs Kristoffer Anderson and Wendy Lopez. 

The menu includes fresh paella and gazpacho dinners for families experiencing financial hardship because of coronavirus. 

Residents can RSVP to pick up the meals at Reyes Mezcaleria in downtown Orlando on Wednesday and Thursday from 1 to 5 pm. 

Food will be distributed curbside and people should remain in their car and avoid making physical contact with staff and volunteers. 

World Central Kitchen has provided 350,000 meals a week in cities across America since the beginning of the pandemic.
