DC Central Kitchen Truck Farm
We try to share with you all of the great things that DC Central Kitchen is up to, so many of you are familiar with DCCK from our frequent Facebook and Twitter mentions of their latest projects. DCCK has partnered with the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) People's Garden on the Truck Farm project. This mini-garden in the back of a 2002 Dodge Ram pick-up is planted with fresh produce and used as a tool to teach urban youth about healthy eating. We are delighted to have been able to support DCCK to help get the truck farm underway. If you ever see it rolling through the streets of DC, look for our logo on the side!
The Truck Farm visits youth agencies and schools and conduct hour-long, interactive lessons at each site. In addition, the Truck Farm is at the USDA farmers market every Friday as well as summer youth events hosted by the People's Garden and Capital Area Food Bank. Check them out!
