World Central Kitchen - Ukraine Fund
$20,018 - 2022

After a diligent review process by our race committee and the board, Scranton 4 Ukraine Association has selected World Central Kitchen's (WCK) Ukraine Fund to be our initial beneficiary of our 2022 fundraising activities. WCK is a 501(c)3 organization with very low administrative costs. They have been on the ground since day one of the invasion, serving meals to Ukrainian refugees on the Polish/Ukrainian border. WCK has since been operating inside the war-torn Ukraine, preparing and delivering meals to those forced to flee their homes. As the situation has unfolded, the war in Ukraine has also become a war on food. Activity at ports and borders has been disrupted, straining the food supply that feeds not only Ukraine, but the world. Since activating almost five months ago, WCK food cargo trains, and restaurant and farm partners, have been hit by missiles. Still, every single day thousands of WCK's Ukrainian Food Fighters show up to provide nourishing meals and food aid to families remaining in the country. These incredible teams have served over 100 million meals. Scranton 4 Ukraine Association is proud to support WCK and their brave and heroic volunteers!
