Chef José Andrés, whose World Central Kitchen fed those aboard the Diamond Princess cruise ship in Japan, spoke at CNN's ongoing town hall about what it was like on board.
"If you are in a place, a hotel, a cruise ship, where everybody may be infected, it's logical to say that you want to make sure in this case food is prepared outside," Andrés said.
Here's how they got it done: First, they cooked meals outside the ship in an onshore location. "We got a lot of help from different Japanese chefs," Andrés said. Then, they brought the food to kitchens near the ship. "We will reheat the food and put it back and bring it in with a forklift. And then inside, they will take care of distribution," he said.
"Everything was done, I would say, in a very professional way to make sure that everybody will be safe, achieving what we wanted, feed everybody in a healthy way," Andrés added.
This isn't the first time Andrés has cooked in disaster scenarios: He also helped cook meals for those affected in the Bahamas during Hurricane Dorian, as well as Americans after as Hurricane Maria, Hurricane Florence, and the California wildfires.
