DC Central Kitchen marked near completion of construction on its new headquarters, scheduled to open this fall on Buzzard Point, with a “first look” event joined by elected officials, including DC Mayor Muriel Bowser and Ward 6 Councilmember Charles Allen, as well as philanthropists, community advocates and celebrity chef José Andrés.

The 36,000 square foot space on 2nd Street SW will be known as the Michael R. Klein Center for Jobs & Justice and will become the nation’s largest community kitchen and urban food hub. The center will include a teaching kitchen, a cafe and a home base for the Healthy Corners program, which provides DC residents in areas without full-service grocery stores access to healthy food by equipping corner store owners with fresh and frozen produce.
