Essence Corp makes donation to help serve meals in the Bahamas after Dorian

By Laura Shirk


In addition to making a donation, Essence Corp is directly helping its own beauty advisors located in the Bahamas, who were impacted by Dorian


Miami-based Essence Corp has joined in the efforts to help Bahamian residents recover in the aftermath of disastrous Hurricane Dorian last week

Essence Corp has made a donation to World Central Kitchen (WCK), Inc., founded by internationally known Chef Jose Andres, who, in collaboration with local Bahamian chefs, Tim & Rebecca Tibbitts, owners of the Flying Fish GastroBar in Freeport, has set up mobile kitchens in Abaco, Grand Bahama and Nassau, to cook and prepare 20,000 meals a day and feed Bahamian residents in shelters and in damaged homes. Together, they are committed to doing whatever it takes to get food to the people who need it most, be it by boat, helicopter or plane. Donations of all sizes are what is fueling this amazing work.

The WCK aims to provide meals to the most vulnerable people in the developing world. Last year, WCK activated in response to 13 disasters — some of them natural, and some man-made. From serving children in the shelters on our border with Mexico to making deliveries by lamplight to those keeping watch over beaches in Indonesia.

In addition to the above, Essence Corp is also directly helping 11 of its very own Beauty Advisors located in the Bahamas, who were impacted by Dorian.
