DC Central Kitchen Receives Inaugural H2HC Innovation Award

DC Central Kitchen is honored to have been selected as one of the two national recipients of the Hunger to Health Collaboratory’s prestigious and competitive inaugural Prizes for Innovation award! The Hunger to Health Collaboratory (H2HC) is an innovative national model that convenes cross-sector thought leaders to explore systemic solutions to food, nutrition, and health challenges with a focus on equity and the social drivers of health.

Following the historic 2022 White House Conference and Food, Nutrition, and Health, and to support the Biden-Harris Administration’s call to end hunger by 2030, H2HC launched its inaugural Prizes for Innovation in 2023. The Prizes for Innovation identify and highlight creative, systemic efforts to address food and nutrition inequities and advance health equity in communities throughout the United States.

This powerful investment from the Hunger to Health Collaboratory has allowed DC Central Kitchen to welcome thought partners and practitioners from around the country to our brand-new, cutting-edge facility in Washington, DC, and provide in-depth, open-source insights from our array of workforce development and healthy food access programs. Over the next two years, we will engage in mutual learning with hundreds of mission-aligned partners and work to scale the power of nonprofits and social enterprises like us to make lasting change at the intersection of food, health, and economic inclusion.
