I have volunteered at DC Central Kitchen in 2010 January and 2009 january with a group of about 30 volunteers each time.

I will ove to go back to DC central Kitchen due to the professional attitude and mangement of the DC Central Kitchen Staff.

They teach our volunteers the
value of food, Cleanliness and above all human dignity.
Looking forward to Volunteer this year also

DCCK volunteers have three meaningful ways to spend three hours. Most (some 10,000 people in 2009) join our morning meal production shift. Between 9 am and noon, these individuals will work alongside DCCK staff and culinary trainees to prepare 4,500 meals for hungry and at-risk members of the DC community.

But not everyone is a morning person. We also offer an evening shift from 5 to 8 pm when our volunteers slice and dice fresh local produce recovered from area farms. The finished products are bagged and sealed for use in future DCCK meal production.

Finally, volunteers can also join our First Helping street-level outreach team. Each morning, First Helping volunteers serve breakfast to chronically homeless individuals at 4 locations in DC, offering hot meals and warm conversation. Volunteers are supported by highly qualified outreach workers with extensive knowledge of the areas and individuals they serve. First Helping volunteers must be 18 or older.
