We've long been supporters of DC Central Kitchen, and here's why: In 2010 for example, 77% of a 92 person class were ex-offenders. After the 14 week program, they achieved these pretty significant milestones:
- 90% job placement rate upon graduation
- 73% job retention rate after six months of employment
- Over $11/hour average starting wage
- $285,000 in payroll taxes were contributed back to the community by the graduates
There's a reception at 2pm and a ceremony at 2:30pm. They'd love to have you!
