In Washington, D.C. the program is using a renovated ambulance to provide homeless people meals and basic-level social services. In response to calls from the Red Cross to help rescue workers at the Pentagon and postal workers being tested for anthrax, DC Central Kitchen has increased the number of meals they serve per day since the September 11th attacks.
With Oprah's Angel Network Use Your Life Award, DC Central Kitchen has expanded their job training abilities to the national level by creating Kitchens In National Cooperation. As a result, student volunteers at Saint Louis University now work with on-campus dining services to help combat hunger in their community. Five additional Campus Kitchens will be opened over the next year.
