Wine Legends Dinner V

 Grapes for Humanity Global is delighted to announce our next Wine Legends Dinner on October 16th, 2024 in New York City at The Bazaar by José Andrés.

Dear friends,

Working with our longtime partner World Central Kitchen and its founder Chef José Andrés, HAS has begun a food relief effort in Haiti’s Artibonite, where hunger has reached a crisis point.

Transporting supplies under cover of night and quickly pulling together cooking and service teams including HAS staff, local community workers and World Central Kitchen, the relief effort began yesterday at the HAS hospital. Over 300 hot meals were served on the first day – and the scale up will be rapid. With food insecurity rapidly reaching famine level, this week we will roll out with the goal of serving 1000 meals per day at multiple sites including our health centers in Deschapelles as well as our remote sites in the mountains of Bastien and Tienne.

All the while, HAS continues in our mission to deliver health services to hundreds of thousands – from daily outpatient care to complex surgeries.

This incredible food relief effort will impact our local communities in Haiti in so many positive ways. Not only will we be feeding daily hot meals to those who are approaching starvation, but the ingredients for the meals are sourced from local farmers and providers to help support the local economy in the Artibonite, which has been devastated by the chaos. With roads blocked, farmers and distributors have been cut off and unable to transport their crops and food to markets, devastating the local economy. This food relief effort will provide them with a much needed lifeline.

We thank World Central Kitchen and you for supporting HAS and for steadfastly standing with the people of Haiti.

“Haitian favorites Rice and Red Beans, with chicken in a Red Sauce were served yesterday.”

We are grateful for our many supporters and partners, especially World Central Kitchen and YOU, who join us to make essential humanitarian work possible during this tumultuous time in Haiti.

Our incredible Haitian team will continue to deliver their very best efforts to keep the life-saving care flowing.
