Help D.C. Central Kitchen Start a Truck Farm!

As Stacey’s Grandma Tillie says, “If you mean well, then do well!” Here’s a great opportunity to do well and donate to a fantastic charitable organization, D.C. Central Kitchen (DCCK).

Why do we think DCCK is so deserving of our help? They offer culinary job training and many other services in addition to feeding homeless and hungry adults. DCCK doesn’t just feed the hungry and send them on their way. It’s a not-for-profit that is run like a business and even spawned a revenue-generating catering company called Fresh Start.

DCCK is appealing for funds to purchase a used truck to start a “truck farm.” DCCK’s truck will be an educational tool “to teach urban youth about healthy eating and to get them interested in where their food comes from.” You can donate to the project and help get kids excited about eating well and eating right!

Learn more about the inspiration for the Truck Farm.

And what’s this eye candy on the blog today? Stacey shot these images (on black and white Fuji Neopan film) at a preview event for the Capital Food Fight. Three chefs – Victor Albisu of BLT Steak, Evening Star Café’s Will Artley and Scott Drewno of The Source by Wolfgang Puck – each made a different dish Iron Chef style with King salmon. All of them were delicious!

Instead, I’ve come up with other chef-related features, such as our banh mi extravaganza and news about worthy causes such as D.C. Central Kitchen. […]
