Join us for a special September 11th Day of Service and Remembrance Hunger Action at DC Central Kitchen. Volunteer your time on 9/11 as a meaningful tribute to the 9/11 victims, survivors, and those who rose up in service in response to the attacks.

DC Central Kitchen prepares over 4,500 meals a day, 365 days a year, for low-income residents and those experiencing homelessness.

Join us to volunteer on site at the DC Central Kitchen. Tasks include chopping vegetables, sorting fresh produce, mixing salads, portioning meals, preparing and cooking food.

To work in the kitchen volunteers must wear long pants, closed-toed shoes – non-slip soles recommended, shirts with sleeves (short sleeves are okay, tank tops are not), and a hat or other head covering. Hairnets are provided if you don’t bring a hat. Midriff shirts are not allowed.  Aprons and gloves will be provided.

Volunteers must be at least 12 years old to participate, no exceptions please. 

If you have a respiratory or stomach ailment, for health safety reasons, please volunteer another time.

If you have any questions concerning volunteering in a professional kitchen, please email Sonya at[email protected]
