José Andrés Gave Away Free Food to March for Our Lives Protesters

The humanitarian chef took to the streets of D.C.

Even getting the James Beard Foundation's Humanitarian of the Year award hasn't given José Andrés an excuse to take a break. Last weekend, the vocal chef took to the streets of D.C. to help support the March for Our Lives rally, handing out free food to people participating in the protest.

"The adults, we are not in charge anymore. We are here to support you. The future. The kids. The children," the chef said in a video posted on his Twitter account. According to Food & Wine, Andrés spent the day handing out doughnuts, apples, pizzas and sandwiches to participants at the United States Navy Memorial.

"Super amazing to see how many kids, how many children, how many high schoolers supported by their families are here with a very, very simple clear message," he added.

Other restaurants and restaurateurs outside of ThinkFoodGroup helped support the march: Danny Meyer's Shake Shack held a poster-making event earlier in the week, while students under 18 were given free meals at The Pig and The Bird, two restaurants run by Eat Well D.C.
