DC Central Kitchen website
We in the United States tend to overlook hunger in our own midst. How could the most prosperous country in the world have citizens who go hungry? We have millions....

Enter DC Central Kitchen. Listen to Amy Bachman, Procurement Director there discuss their unusual win-win-win model for helping heal all of these societal wounds in the Washington, DC area in this enlightening conversation with Green Connections Radio host Joan Michelson.
And, of course, what you can do. Ask your market what they do with bruised fruit and vegetables and tell them about DC Central Kitchen.
