The famous restaurateur traveled to Poland to help World Central Kitchen feed Ukrainian immigrants at the border.
Paul Fleming, in charge of PF Chang’s, Flemings Steakhouse and other networks, said it was “in some way a vocation” that made him embark on an unforgettable journey.
Fleming is no stranger to feeding the hungry, but not so during the war.
“If you want to do something for the hungry, you need to feed them. Don’t just write a check, figure out how to help, ”Fleming said.
He spent eight days at the World Central Kitchen, serving food and doing everything he could to help.
“The first day I was there, I was at the train station, some people come by train, and it’s as sad as you think, and it’s all women and kids,” Fleming said.
Fleming said he was disappointed not to linger longer.
“I was disappointed that I was afraid to go to Ukraine, and there are all sorts of volunteers in Lviv,” Fleming said.
Fleming said he would always remember the courage of the Ukrainian people.
