The wait is over! After a long hiatus, our indoor volunteer program returns to the Klein Center for Jobs and Justice beginning April 1, 2023. Sign up is now open for daily shifts between April and June, 2023.
DC Central Kitchen is the food service provider for 19 schools in Washington, DC. We source ingredients from more than 30 local family farms and every meal is scratch-cooked according to recipes designed by our expert team of chefs and dietitians. We fight hunger differently by providing the high-quality nutrition kids relying on school meals need to learn and grow while sustaining meaningful, living-wage careers for at-risk adults who have completed our Culinary Job Training program.
In addition to providing meals, we offer engaging cooking demonstrations, taste tests, and nutrition education lessons for the students and staff at the schools we serve.
