Documentary in the Works Featuring José Andrés and His Humanitarian Work

Ron Howard and National Geographic will follow Andrés and his World Central Kitchen team as they serve food to people affected by disasters.

José Andrés is known around the world as a leading entrepreneur and restaurateur, with noteworthy locales from coast to coast. This includes his Jaleo chain, Barmini, The Bazaar, Beefsteak, Fish, Mercado Little Spain, Minibar, Pepe Food Truck, and Oyamel, among others.

But in recent years he’s garnered even more attention for his incredible humanitarian work. Through his non-profit World Central Kitchen, Andrés provides people affected by natural and manmade disasters—from Hurricane Maria in Puerto Rico to Covid-19—with hot meals. He and his organization are “Food First Responders,” serving millions of meals over the years as they seek to “create smart solutions to hunger and poverty.”

Now, National Geographic is preparing a documentary about his efforts. Famed filmmaker Ron Howard and producer Brian Grazer will be working with Imagine Documentaries to showcase all of the work that he and World Central Kitchen have done. The film will follow Andrés and his team as they travel around the world to serve meals and will shine a light on the agreements forged with local chefs and the sense of community he and his team help create.
