Marriott International’s travel program, Marriott Bonvoy, and The J. Willard and Alice S. Marriott (JWASM) Foundation made a combined donation of US$500,000 to the World Central Kitchen (WCK).

Nonprofit organization WCK, founded by chef Jose Andres, provides meals in the wake of natural disasters and crises around the world. The donation is in addition to a Marriott Bonvoy effort underway in which, for the month of June, it is matching all point donations to its philanthropic partners, including WCK, up to 25 million points.

World Central Kitchen has provided millions of meals to survivors of disasters while helping to rebuild and strengthen communities through food. This donation will directly impact WCK’s ongoing initiatives, including emergency food relief and capacity building.
