DC Central Kitchen
September 28 | 9:00 a.m.–12:00 p.m.

DC Central Kitchen’s mission is to use food as a tool to strengthen bodies, empower minds, and build communities. They develop and operate social ventures targeting the cycle of hunger and poverty. 

They fight hunger by training jobless adults for culinary careers and then hiring dozens of their own graduates to prepare the three million meals they provide each year. Their ventures also prevent the waste of millions of pounds of food, expand access to healthy, local options in urban food deserts, and scale their model nationally through strategic partnerships with colleges and universities.

Every day volunteers help DC Central Kitchen transform 3,000 pounds of donated food into 5,000 balanced meals that are distributed at little or no cost to 80 nearby homeless shelters, transitional homes, and nonprofit organizations. There are spaces for 12 volunteers to help with meal preparation. Please wear closed-toe shoes, shirts with sleeves and long pants.

Using public transportation is highly recommended as there is no on-site parking at the Kitchen. The closest metro stop is Judiciary Square on the Red Line.

We plan to coordinate a lunch afterwards—details to follow.
