Helping Our Community One Meal At A Time


On September 17, 2019 and January 28, 2020 twelve ASMC Washington Chapter members donated their time and talent to help DC Central Kitchen.  DC Central Kitchen prepares and deliver more than 5,000 meals to partner homeless shelters, rehabilitation clinics, halfway houses, and afterschool programs each day.

The team of volunteers gathered at DC Central Kitchen to help the kitchen staff with various tasks for the morning. Wearing hair and beard nets and aprons, the team was divided into small groups to help the DC Central Kitchen staff in different parts of the kitchen. The volunteers cut vegetables for bolognese sauce, helped prepare the Bolognese sauce, cut various fruits, prepared meals and snack boxes for community centers, and helped DC Central Kitchen with other tasks. At the end of the morning, the team had time to reflect on the impact the organization makes in our community and enjoyed a delicious lunch prepared by the kitchen staff at DC Central Kitchen as a gesture of their gratitude!   Thank you to all of the wonderful volunteers!
