Good morning! For more than a decade, World Central Kitchen—founded by chef José Andrés—has been feeding people during natural disasters around the world. In 2020, its mission came home as it served meals to thousands of people in the U.S. whose lives had been disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. From messaging apps to solar chargers to drones, technology plays an essential role in helping the nonprofit keep going even when times are anything but normal. My colleague Rob Pegoraro spoke with WCK’s CEO and chief strategy officer about some of the organization’s key tools.

Trump bans transactions with Chinese apps: What you need to know
With just two weeks of his presidency left, President Trump has issued what could be among his final executive orders. This order bans U.S. transactions with eight Chinese apps, the most prominent of which are AliPay and WeChat Pay. 
The Trump administration says the ban on the apps is needed due to national security concerns. AliPay, WeChat Pay, and the other apps can collect user information, including financial transactions and location data, among other metrics.
There is a chance the ban will never come into effect. It’s not scheduled to come into effect until 31 days after Trump leaves office, and Joe Biden, the incoming president, could decide not to enforce it. 
Trump previously attempted to ban China-owned TikTok, but that effort was fought in the courts.
