About the Organizations:

DC Central Kitchen uses food as a tool to change lives. Each day, the Kitchen serves up 10,000 balanced meals packed with fresh, local produce. Half of these meals are delivered to area homeless shelters, after-school programs, and other nonprofit organizations serving low-income DC residents. The other half are prepared in DC public and private schools, making DCCK the only nonprofit in America conducting a full-service healthy school meal program. They also offer an acclaimed Culinary Job Training program that empowers at-risk, unemployed adults to embark on new careers. Many program graduates go on to work in their busy kitchens, supporting DCCK’s direct service programs and social enterprise activities. To learn more, please visit
