DC Central Kitchen

Food prep DCCK

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.

About DC Central Kitchen

As the nation’s first and leading community kitchen, DC Central Kitchen develops and operates social ventures targeting the cycle of hunger and poverty. Each of our ventures create opportunities for meaningful careers, expand access to healthy food, and test innovative solutions to systemic failures. By preparing adults with high barriers to employment for culinary careers and creating good, living wage jobs for our culinary graduates here at DC Central Kitchen, we target the root cause of hunger by offering pathways out of poverty. Our commitments to earning at least half our budget through social enterprise, purchasing directly from local farms, recovering otherwise wasted food, and engaging the next generation of student leaders further advance our sustainability and extend our impact throughout the food system.
