DC Central Kitchen

Food prep DCCKDC Central Kitchen prepares over 5,000 meals a day, 365 days a year, for low-income residents and those experiencing homelessness. 

Join us to volunteer on site at the DC Central Kitchen. Tasks include chopping vegetables, sorting fresh produce, mixing salads, portioning meals, preparing and cooking food. 

To work in the kitchen volunteers must wear long pants, closed-toed shoes - non-slip soles recommended, shirts with sleeves (short sleeves are okay, tank tops are not), and a hat or other head covering. Hairnets are provided if you don't bring a hat. Midriff shirts are not allowed.  Aprons and gloves will be provided. 

Volunteers must be at least 12 years old to participate, no exceptions please. 

If you aren't feeling well and have any flu or cold-like symptoms we request that you volunteer a different time for the safety of those we serve.
