NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY)– Meals made with love. It’s something that the World Central Kitchen volunteers and chefs are most proud of.

They’ve already distributed more than a thousand hot meals to people in the Cape Fear region, today alone.

You may recall, one year ago, Chef Jose Andres brought World Central Kitchen to Wilmington and fed thousands of people after Hurricane Florence.

Now that group is back. Relief administration manager, Zomi Frankcom says this international non-profit organization is now preparing more fresh meals for dinner.

Frankcom tells us, WCK and the New Hanover Disaster Coalition have paired up to reach more people. She says, right now there’s about forty volunteers.

Many of them are Hurricane Florence veterans who reached out through the organization’s social media page. Frankcom says volunteers and chefs are happy to help.

“I think I have the best job in the world,” Frankcom said, “So to be able to provide that comfort to a person who is in a really bad of their life, and everything that we do, and that our volunteers do is with love and dignity, and so to be able to be there for them, and give them all of the good things and the good food in that time means everything.”

She says they’re passing out fresh food to people in the community, and different agencies, like the Emergency Operations Centers.
