WASHINGTON — Celebrity chef José Andrés has made his way to Houston in the wake of Hurricane Harvey to assist the thousands of displaced and at-risk residents.

The Washington Post has the full story of Andrés going down to Texas to help out, but the famed chef has posted updates on his Twitter account of his time in Houston.

Andrés has 10 restaurants around the D.C. area, but his website does not list any restaurants in Texas currently open. However, his Zaytinya Dallas restaurant is listed as “coming soon.”

Andrés teamed up with World Central Kitchen’s Chef Network to set up the kitchen, and they’re looking for chefs to help out, per the latter’s website:

“We are looking for professional chefs and cooks who can pick up their knife kits and head to Houston immediately to prepare food, serve, clean, to help the many people in need of support through this challenging period.”

Additionally, D.C. restaurants and bars are teaming up to collect donations for the victims of the disaster in Houston, with the goal of raising $25,000 for the American Red Cross, per POPville. A full list of the participating locations is available here.
