Known as “the Oscars of the culinary world,” the annual James Beard Awards present some of the highest honors and recognitions achievable in the culinary industry.

The James Beard Foundation’s Humanitarian of the Year award goes to “an individual or organization working in the realm of food who has given selflessly and worked tirelessly to better the lives of others and society at large.” This year, the award went to José Andrés, world-renowned chef and founder of World Central Kitchen, a global non-profit organization dedicated to “creating smart solutions to hunger and poverty.”

Chef Andrés was selected as the 2018 recipient because of his relief efforts in Puerto Rico following Hurricane Maria. After seeing the destruction Maria left on the island, Andrés went down to Puerto Rico with World Central Kitchen, and served more than 3 million meals to those who lost virtually everything in the storm.
