Sips & Suppers is the brainchild of culinary greats José Andrés, Joan Nathan, and Alice Waters, who began the event in 2009 as a means of raising awareness about hunger and poverty in the District of Columbia. Now in its 10th Anniversary year, this extraordinary fundraiser unites some of our nation’s greatest chefs with a growing community of local philanthropists and activists in support of DC Central Kitchen and Martha’s Table.
Since its inception, Sips & Suppers has raised over $3 million in support of our work to combat hunger in our nation’s capital. This generous investment has helped DC Central Kitchen prepare 22 million healthy, balanced meals for DC kids and families, while equipping nearly 1,000 men and women with the skills needed to overcome histories of incarceration, homelessness, and trauma and pursue culinary careers. At Martha’s Table, these funds have directly impacted children, families, and neighbors. Over the past 10 years, Martha’s Table has been able to provide over 6 million healthy meals, expand no-cost Joyful Food Markets to 39 elementary schools in Southeast DC, providing over 5,000 students access to healthy fresh produce each month, and support children and families through high-quality education programs.
