Volunteering to help the hungry may not be at the top of your typical "Things to do on Vacation" List but spending a few hours at DC Central Kitchen is a rewarding experience for Trabblrs looking to do some good at a local institution. DC Central Kitchen dishes out 5,000 meals a day to low-income and at-risk people throughout Washington. But they're more than just a soup kitchen - along with meals, the Kitchen offers culinary job training and food recycling programs. Education plays as big, if not bigger, role than charity. And we're big fans of that.
Trabblrs can volunteer in two ways: either meal prep or street outreach. Please click here for the schedule and availability. We don't recommend the gleaning events since you'll have to make your own way to the farm, which could be two hours outside the city.
Note: You will have to create an account before registering to volunteer with DC Kitchen. They need very little info. though so it shouldn't be a deal breaker.
Meeting point: DC Central Kitchen. The closest Metro stop is Judiciary Square on the Red Line.
Leaders, please look at the schedule and join an event with a lot of available spots and create your event accordingly! Have fun!
