Volunteer opportunity: Morning Meal Prep at DC Central Kitchen

What is DC Central Kitchen? 

DC Central Kitchen is America's leader in reducing hunger with recycled food, training unemployed adults for culinary careers, serving healthy school meals, and rebuilding urban food systems through social enterprise.

What will we be doing as volunteers?

Meal preparation is DC Central Kitchen's most popular volunteer opportunity. Help DC Central Kitchen's staff prepare over 5,000 meals each day by cutting, chopping and peeling thousands of pounds of food.

Dress code

Due to health regulations, volunteers who do not follow this dress code will not be allowed to work in the Kitchen. Volunteers must wear:

- Long pants (no pajama pants and no spandex pants please)

- Closed-toed shoes (no sandals)

- Tank-tops are not allowed

- No exposed midriff

- No high heels


Additional information

Locker space is limited, so please try to travel light. Weekday volunteers are invited to stay for lunch at 12:00 p.m.

Getting Here

The main kitchen is accessible by Metro train. The closest stop is Judiciary Square on the red line. Limited metered street parking is also available. 

The main kitchen is located at 2nd and E Streets NW in a blue-gray building. Look for DC Central Kitchen signs and follow the long driveway off E Street to the service entrance.

    How strict is the waiting list. Is it OK to show up anyway?

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
