T&T Staff Volunteers at DC Central Kitchen
On Saturday, June 29th, members of Tate & Tryon staff participated in a volunteer event at DC Central Kitchen in Washington, DC. Working on morning meal preparation, our staff helped turn 3,000 pounds of donated food into 5,000 balanced meals for distribution to 80 local homeless shelters, transitional homes, and nonprofit organizations.
We had a blast helping out this wonderful organization and its efforts to break the cycle of hunger and poverty. Check out this short video for pictures and highlights of the event!
About DC Central Kitchen
DC Central Kitchen’s mission is to use food as a tool to strengthen bodies, empower minds, and build communities. As the nation’s first and leading community kitchen, DC Central Kitchen develops and operates social ventures targeting the cycle of hunger and poverty. We fight hunger differently by training jobless adults for culinary careers and then hiring dozens of our own graduates to prepare the 3 million meals we provide for homeless shelters, schools, and nonprofits each year. Our ventures also prevent the waste of millions of pounds of nutritious food, expand access to healthy, local options in urban food deserts, and scale our model nationally through strategic partnerships with colleges and universities.
