Inside the World Central Kitchen’s work in Gaza

World Central Kitchen suspended relief operations in Gaza on Monday after seven aid workers were killed in an Israeli airstrike. The video reveals the challenges of food distribution in areas under siege.

Zomi Francom and Damien Sobol arrived in Gaza on a mission to feed Palestinians and documented their efforts in social media videos like this one. Then, on April 1, they were killed along with five other colleagues in an Israeli airstrike, and operations at the World Central Kitchen in Gaza ceased. The charity’s video provides a rare insight into the challenges of food distribution in the Gaza Strip, which is cut off from the outside world and at risk of starvation. Celebrity chef Jose Andrés founded World Central Kitchen in 2010 in response to the Haiti earthquake. The organization delivers meals to areas affected by natural disasters and conflict, including communities displaced within Israel after the October 7 attacks. The organization said it has delivered more than 43 million meals to Palestinians since October through community kitchens, truck convoys and airlifts. In mid-March, they delivered the first aid by sea from Cyprus, with a ship carrying around 200 tons of food. The Israeli military has released footage of the coordination behind the effort, which brought food to northern Gaza, where the United Nations says people are facing catastrophic levels of hunger. “We have high hopes that we will be able to deliver millions of meals every day. We may fail, but the biggest failure is not trying.” Arrived on time. The Israeli military said in a video statement that the attack was a grave mistake. According to the United Nations, nearly 200 aid workers have been killed in Gaza since October 7, and World Central Kitchen has now suspended its operations in Gaza.
