Eater interviews the chef:

 

 

Then I'm doing breakfast, I'm doing room service. It's kind of a secret but maybe it's not any more: I'm doing a food cart in the golf course, which I hope is going to elevate the food the golfers of the world can get at a golf course. You play five hours you should get a decent martini. You should get a decent bloody mary. Especially when you are shooting forty over.

Chef Andres has been a leading figure in private relief efforts for the people of Puerto Rico.  His charity arrived days after the storm passed, and in some places was the only provider of food. The NY Times reports that he and World Central Kitchen will close down many of his feeding operations on the island, as individual stores, restaurants, and other suppliers come on line.  He feels that the need for food is being met by local people, and an NGO has no right to take away their business.

 

Andres will shift his focus to the remote regions on the island, where the need for any food remains unmet. Vieques and other regions. He relies on a mix of local volunteers, his own staff, and some paid local drivers / helpers.
