Review for DC Central Kitchen, Inc., Washington, DC, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I loved DCCK! They opened their arms and welcomed my groups help. We were there for a week working every day in the kitchen and loved every minute of it. The people are so nice and grateful for everything we were willing to help with. They were also VERY accommadating as well. I have many allergies, I'm pretty much allergic to life and they still allowed me to work and kept me safe at the same time. They watched over me like I was one of their daugthers. I loved DCCK. It's the best environment with the most cheerful people.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

the shelter that they provide food for. We would go up and serve the food we prepared and the people were so nice to us and they just appreciated us being there. Not to mention the people who go through the program there are some of the nicest and generious people I've ever met.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ask the shelter what kind of food they might like to have. It's some times repetitive and i can understand getting tired of the same things all the time.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The people. They were phenomenal! They laughed and sung with us. They were always cheerful and they told us their stories. We bonded and I love every one of them.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

The staff was fantasic. Simply amazing, I don't think I'll ever meet another group of people that inspired me so much.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Serve and do so much mroe for the community! DCCK is an amazing organization and I'd love to see them get more funding to help more people on the streets and in the shelter.

Ways to make it better...

I wasn't allergic to literally everything, but they still put me to work and I had a blast!

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

Their biggest challenge I think are getting the right people to work in the kitchen. I mean as volunteers not staff. Volunteers are sometimes there because they have too not always because they want too and because their care, that just makes it kind of a downer sometimes.

One thing I'd also say is that...

DCCK was the best volunteer environment I've ever been too. I would recommend it to anyone that whats to interact with amazing staff and have a blast. I was sad when I had to leave.

Should this review be counted for a specific campaign?
