• Prince Harry and Meghan Markle's Archewell foundation is partnering with Chef José Andrés' World Kitchen Central  
  • The Duke and Duchess of Sussex want to help end hunger through their partnership
  • Their project aims to build relief centers that will serve as service kitchens during crises

Meghan Markle and Prince Harry's nonprofit organization Archewell announced its first major project partnership that aims to help feed the hungry people.

The Duke and Duchess of Sussex are partnering with José Andrés' World Kitchen Central for their first major charity project. Prince Harry and Markle together with the food relief charity aim to provide funding to construct four special Community Relief Centers around the world that will serve as service kitchens during crises.

"The health of our communities depends on our ability to connect to our shared humanity," the Sussexes said in an email to Harper's Bazaar.

"When we think about Chef Andrés and his incredible team at World Central Kitchen, we're reminded that even during a year of unimaginable hardship, there are so many amazing people willing—and working tirelessly—to support each other. World Central Kitchen inspires us through compassion in action."

Meanwhile, Andrés said the foundation is happy and excited to be working with the Duke and Duchess of Sussex's organization. Work is currently underway in Dominica after the country was hit by Hurricanes Irma and Maria in 2017. The other project is in Puerto Rico where Andrés launched a major food security response following Hurricane Maria. The final two locations will be announced in 2021, with Prince Harry, Markle and Andrés still working on finding more partners to build additional Community Relief Centers in other regions around the world.

"We are more energized than ever to continue this vital work, and we're proud that it will be hand in hand with Archewell Foundation and The Duke and Duchess of Sussex. I have come to know both of them well, and believe that their values are directly aligned with what we stand for at World Central Kitchen," Andrés said about the partnership.

Andrés also visited Beirut to help feed the people there following the massive explosions in the city in August. The chef and founder of World Central Kitchen distributed individually packed fresh meals to the communities that were still recovering after the incident.

Ex-porn star Mia Khalifa, who was born in Beirut and had been actively raising funds for Beirut at the time, praised the chef for his charity efforts.

"Merci ktir, chef the Lebanese have always looked at you like a pioneer for representation in the food industry. Growing up in the DMV when people would ask me 'what’s Lebanese?' I would simply answer proudly ‘like Zaytinya!’" she tweeted referring to Andrés restaurant in Washington DC that serves Turkish, Greek and Lebanese cuisines.
