About DC Central Kitchen.
Since their founding in 1989, DC Central Kitchen has prepared 25 million meals for our low-income and at-risk neighbors in Washignton, DC.
The 5,000 meals they dish out every day are loaded into their fleet of trucks and distributed at little or no cost to 100 nearby homeless shelters, transitional homes, and non-profit organizations.
Most importantly, DC Central Kitchen offers a rigorous Culinary Job Training program for unemployed men and women who want to replace homelessness, addicition, and incarceration with new careers and changed lives.
To help fund these programs and create good jobs, DC Central Kitchen is breaking new ground in the world of social enterprise, serving healthy, scratch-cooked meals in DC public schools and delivering nutritious snacks to corner stores in low-income neighborhoods.
