volunteering at dc central kitchen

Join us in the CoBank Volunteer Zone for daily morning shifts starting at 9am and weekday evening shifts from 6 – 8pm. Sign up now via our online Volunteer Portal.


DC Central Kitchen gleanings support local farms and help prevent food waste! Through October, volunteers will meet us at local farms to pick fresh produce that they could otherwise not harvest or sell. DCCK will use these ingredients to prepare and deliver nutritious meals to community partners throughout DC. No experience is required!

Interested in joining? Gleanings will continue this June through October! Sign up for a session today using our volunteer portal.

Gleaning shifts occur from 9 am to 12 pm, volunteers are encouraged to arrive at 8:45. No prior experience required.
