In honor of the dedication and sacrifice of seven World Central Kitchen workers who were tragically killed in an Israeli airstrike in Gaza, a Chicago chef paid tribute. The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, stated that the armed forces unintentionally struck a convoy from the humanitarian group late Monday. World Central Kitchen operates in conflict zones, famine areas, and regions of unrest, and had coordinated their movements with the Israeli Defense Forces. Despite this, they were hit and killed by Israeli fire.

One of the workers killed, Zomi Francom from Australia, was involved in providing food for the same group that Chicago chef Tony Priolo had worked with during the war in Ukraine. Priolo had traveled to the Poland-Ukraine border to help feed starving refugees. The news of the workers’ deaths deeply affected Priolo, who considered them heroes for their selfless dedication.

Priolo expressed his willingness to volunteer in Gaza if given the opportunity, highlighting the chefs’ commitment to cooking and feeding people. The founder of World Central Kitchen, celebrity chef José Andrés, referred to the workers who died as his “sisters and brothers” and “angels,” emphasizing the impact of their work in providing aid to those in need.
