We all know the importance of community service throughout the year, but the holiday season has a way of putting it at the forefront of our minds. Venga has had the privilege of working with local organization DC Central Kitchen, which fights poverty, hunger, and homelessness through job training and meal distribution. Way back in the day (August 2011 to be exact) we ran a two-week campaign to raise food and funds for DC Central Kitchen, and have been proud partners ever since.
The collaboration brought in celebrity chefs, athletes, journalists and thousands of DC area residents to support a great cause. Together, we collected a whopping 11,500 pounds of food for the organization’s use.
In the spirit of the holidays, we headed back to DCCK’s home base this week to volunteer with some of their team. We had a great time helping an amazing organization and can’t wait to go back! Check out a few photos from our fun day:
