Volunteers are the driving force behind each Campus Kitchen. Every day, they help produce and distribute meals to those in need all across the country, utilizing their time and talents to serve. While service for many may just be a one time or weekly occurrence, for others, service is much more.
This week we are celebrating Americorps Week and recognizing the long tradition of individuals who go one step further and donate a whole year to support the mission to dismantle poverty and hunger across the nation. There are over 10 Americorps members serving through DC Central Kitchen and The Campus Kitchens Project this year alone!
These individuals work on job training, nutrition education, community development, street-level outreach, data analysis, food resourcing, partnership development and much more to build the capacity of their organization or institution. Their work has supported DC Central Kitchen and CKP by reaching individuals, developing connections and strengthening the communities within which they serve.
