They are known as the 88’s. The 88th DC Central Kitchen Culinary Jobs Training Class. As they say on the DC Central Kitchen (DCCK) Website: “Solving the immediate problem of hunger is only fighting half of the battle. That’s why, in addition to the food recovery and distribution program, DCCK addresses the root causes of hunger with its Culinary Job Training program. The goal of the program is to prepare unemployed, underemployed, previously incarcerated persons, and homeless adults for careers in the foodservice industry.” Click below to hear part of 88’s graduation!
