Food is one of the most basic needs of all human beings, yet thousands of men, women and children go to sleep hungry every night throughout the U.S. In Cooking For A Cause, corporate teams will bond while making a meaningful and worthwhile donation of food to people in need. Your group will cook and eat food they prepare during the event, but the program also allows for a 3-pronged donation to hungry area populations:
- Hot food donation to area soup kitchens
- Sandwich/snack donation for delivery to food drop-off sites
- Food pantry donation of “Food Bag” to families in need
Cooking For A Cause has three components: the Cooking Competition, The Great PB & J Challenge, and Food Bag Donation. All involve cooking, competition and challenges as teams work together to provide fare to share with local families in need.
When possible, staff from the benefiting organization will be on hand to receive the donations – what a great way to build your team – and give back to the community!
We estimate 30 sq. ft. per team. Our approach allows us to come to your favorite hotel, conference center, winery or auditorium, allowing for easy planning.
“Thank you for partnering with DC Central Kitchen in combating hunger. We are using your food as part of the 4,500 meals we distribute each day to about 100 shelters in the DC Metropolitan Area.”J.S. – DC Central Kitchen
