Wherever there is a need — even a need to uplift a righteous crowd — chef José Andrés is there. He's fed millions of meals to storm victims in Puerto Rico, and before that he was on the scene to feed storm victims in Haiti. His incredible philanthropic efforts even earned him a spot on the Oscars' stage. And his latest work of food activism came just this weekend and on the mainland, where José Andrés handed out free food to student protesters at the March for Our Lives in Washington, D.C.
The chef posted a video on social media in which he spoke out in support of the students rallying for gun control measures in the country, noting, it was "super amazing" to see "how many kids, how many children, how many high schoolers, supported by their families" came out for the event. He added, “The adults are not in charge anymore. We are here to support you, the future, the kids.”
He set up his station at Navy Memorial, offerings the likes of fruit, sandwiches, and water bottles, according to the local news outlet KIII TV.
Other local restaurants offered discounts in support of marchers as well.
