FAIRBANKS, Alaska (KTVF) - The World Central Kitchen’s project ‘Chefs For The Polls’ will be providing meals for voters on Election Day Tuesday in Fairbanks.

The ‘Chefs For The Polls’ project by the World Central Kitchen, will be providing those who have voted tomorrow with food at the JP Jones Community Center. Serving breakfast from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 a.m., lunch from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., and then dinner from 4:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m..

“All the food’s been donated and baked or cooked by people in the community who just wanted to be part of this. In fact it’s been great, it’s been really great to see that people care about community and a way of sharing it, especially after all these months of us all being in our little tracks,” said Jennifer Jolis, a Leader of Fairbanks Chefs For the Polls.

World Central Kitchen is an organization that works to provide those in need with fresh meals across the country. To date, WCK has provided over 30 million meals in more than 400 cities.

“What I’m saying to people now is you know, if we don’t need a space filled right down here, make some food anyway and take it to your polling place. Take it to the state office building and hand out cookies or brownies or whatever to people who are waiting in line there outside, where there are really long lines I think for early voting I mean going around blocks, and not always in warm weather. That’s what World Central Kitchens and Chefs for the Polls are doing, they’re feeding people,” commented Jolis.

‘Chefs For The Polls’ will be providing food only for those who have finished voting. For further information about World Central Kitchen, visit their website at
