Chicago chef honors 7 World Central Kitchen workers killed in Gaza as heroes

Seven World Central Kitchen workers were killed in an Israeli airstrike in Gaza, leaving behind a trail of devastation and grief. Despite having coordinated their movements with the Israeli Defense Forces, the humanitarian group was hit by Israeli fire in what Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called a tragic accident. The logo of World Central Kitchen was visible on the caravan vehicles in a video of the blast, and one of the workers killed, Zomi Francom from Australia, had previously worked with Chicago chef Tony Priolo during the war in Ukraine.

Priolo expressed his deep sadness at the news of the workers’ deaths and considered them heroes for their selfless dedication to feeding people in need. He also expressed his willingness to volunteer in Gaza if given the opportunity, highlighting the chefs’ commitment to cooking and providing aid to those who need it most. The founder of World Central Kitchen, celebrity chef José Andrés, referred to the workers who died as his “sisters and brothers” and “angels,” emphasizing the impact that their work had on helping those affected by conflict and famine.
