Our Programs

Since 1989, DC Central Kitchen has taken on the root causes of hunger and poverty in Washington, DC. We have disrupted the traditional approach of food banks and soup kitchens by developing award-winning, job-creating interventions that create economic opportunity and bring healthy food where it is most needed. Our social enterprise programs include:
