The kitchen was set up by World Central Kitchen, which is led by celebrity chef José Andrés to establish food systems in disaster and war zones. Andrés tweeted that the staff members of the non-governmental organization were shaken but safe.

The organization says it has now reached 30 cities across the country, providing nearly 300,000 meals a day. Andrés said the Kharkiv attack shows that “giving food in the midst of a senseless war is an act of courage, resilience and resistance” and that the leaders of his group will continue to cook for Ukraine.
