DC Central Kitchen (DCCK) is an iconic nonprofit organization and social enterprise founded in 1989 to combat hunger and poverty through job training and creation. Every year, hundreds of individuals who have faced barriers to employment, including re-entering citizens, people in recovery, and Opportunity Youth, enroll in the organization’s Culinary Job Training program, a 14-week program accredited by the American Culinary Federation, that provides fundamental culinary and robust life skills. DC Central Kitchen has a very high success rate and has won multiple awards for its efforts over the past three decades, including the Top National Award for Healthy School Innovation and two White House Champion of Change awards.
DC Central Kitchen recently moved to the Michael R. Klein Center for Jobs and Justice, a larger facility to accommodate its personnel and volunteers, as its previous building was overcrowded; spaces were constantly double booked, and modern technology was needed to run the organization successfully. To serve the community even further and increase the number of organizations they could support, DCCK needed larger spaces and better solutions to support their needs.
