After three decades of operating in the basement of the Federal City Shelter in downtown DC, we are thrilled to announce that we have identified a new, long-term home ideally suited for our students, programs, and mission. As reported by The Washington Post in an exclusive earlier this month, DC Central Kitchen will be relocating our headquarters to the Buzzard Point neighborhood along the Southwest Waterfront in early 2022. This new facility within the RiverPoint development will allow us to triple our capacity, providing the healthy food and job training opportunities that our community needs more urgently than ever before. In addition to scaling our programs, offering a state-of-the-art learning environment for our culinary trainees, and ensuring a base of operations here in our nation’s capital for decades to come, DC Central Kitchen looks forward to becoming an integral, inclusive part of the Southwest DC community.
We will continue to provide updates and information about this transformational project in the months ahead.

Press inquiries and questions regarding donations and sponsorship opportunities may be directed to Chief Development Officer Alexander Moore at firstname.lastname@example.org.
