Andrés and his team arrived in North Carolina days before the storm arrived and opened kitchens in Raleigh and Wilmington, two of the hardest-hit areas of the state.
Since the storm made landfall in the Carolinas, his team has personally delivered more than 140,000 meals.
"We have delivered hot meals to 25 shelters so far across a number of counties, plus emergency operations centers, police departments, fire stations, National Guard, search and rescue teams, individual families and neighborhoods who don't have access to food," World Central Kitchen executive director Nate Mook told CNN.
Andres says his kitchens don't just serve meals, they serve hope.
"Even though there is still a lot of flooding, I believe yesterday was more dangerous than today. I'm just glad the storm is finally over and people can start getting their lives back to normal," he said.
