D.C. Central Kitchen (DCCK), a non-profit organization based in Washington, D.C., is providing low-income communities healthy foods by partnering with local corner stores.

Founded in 1989 by Robert Egger, D.C. Central Kitchen’s primary mission is to feed the homeless and poor.

The organization has provided citizens in homeless shelters, halfway houses and non-profit organizations with food donated from local business that would otherwise end up going to waste. Not only does the organization cook the food into healthy meals, it also offers a 14-week culinary program.
