4,5 million portion of food. Such a huge number of food prepared Lviv catering company “FEST” together with World Central Kitchen during the first 7 months of war. They almost fed 35,000 people a day in Lviv.
FEST and WCK opened food stations near Main Railway Station in Lviv, brought food to shelters for internally displaced people, fed soldiers and workers from emergency services. After working in Lviv, WCK spread to other Ukrainian cities and their restaurants. Such an amazing partnership between the foundation and hundreds of Ukrainian restaurateurs helped to feed millions of Ukrainians and the restaurant market was able to survive the most difficult first months of the war. In total, in the first seven months of the war, World Central Kitchen spent 380 million dollars in Ukraine. The money was used to purchase products, to pay for the operation of restaurants, logistics, etc.
What wonderful cooperation between the local community, supplier and international organization that had so HUGE impact!
