About DC Central Kitchen
This year marks DC Central Kitchen’s 21st year of combating hunger and creating opportunity. The Kitchen works 365 days a year providing low-income individuals and families with nutritious food, assisting local farmers, empowering chronically unemployed men and women to achieve self-sufficiency and reaching out to people living on the streets. Always expanding, the Kitchen’s newest initiatives involve recovering thousands of thousands of pounds of free or low-cost, surplus fresh produce from area farms. These delicious vegetables and fruits enhance the nutrition of more than 4,500 meals prepared at the Kitchen and donated to social service agencies in the Greater Washington area each day.
In the past year, 81 men and women overcoming homelessness, addiction, and incarceration gained jobs and hope through the Kitchen’s empowering Culinary Job Training program. Nationally, the Kitchen has expanded its network of Campus Kitchens to 26 university, college and high school campuses, replicating its model across America.
