Our national arm @campuskitchens brings DCCK's model to scale by empowering students to fight hunger differently across the country. Volunteers collect and transform food to redistribute to community partners while also going beyond the meal with localized programming. #MeetDCCK https://t.co/vUgZmel0DL dcck photo
Founded in 1989 in protest of traditional charity models, the organization uses career training, job creation, and sustainable business practices to strengthen local food systems and reduce disparities in health and economic opportunity. The Kitchen’s life-changing social ventures include providing culinary job training to at-risk adults, turning wasted food into balanced meals for shelters and nonprofits, and serving healthy, scratch-cooked meals in low-income schools.
