New Partner Spotlight: DC Central Kitchen
DC Central Kitchen (DCCK) is one of the Greater Washington, DC region’s most beloved and iconic nonprofit organizations. For more than 30 years, DCCK has used food as a tool to create economic opportunity and build healthier communities. While DCCK may serve more than 10,000 meals every day, it’s not a soup kitchen. The DCCK team rips hunger out by its roots, providing hands-on culinary job training for individuals facing high barriers to employment while creating living wage jobs and bringing nutritious, dignified food where it is most needed.
After three decades housed in the cramped basement of a crumbling homeless shelter, DCCK is launching its first-ever comprehensive campaign to move into a new, 35,000 square foot facility in DC’s Buzzard Point neighborhood and expand its program capacity. This new, state-of-the-art space will help DCCK triple its annual impact. No longer will they have to turn away job training applicants because their classrooms are too full or reject donations of fresh food because they don’t have room to store it.
Orr Group is proud to partner with DCCK as it embarks on its biggest endeavor yet! Our team will be providing strategic guidance for the campaign, as well as development support and committee recruitment, engagement, and activation. We look forward to helping drive DCCK’s campaign success and ensuring that this essential organization can multiply its impact and serve our community for years to come.
