The Washington Foreign Press Center led a group of ten journalists from around the world on a one-day media tour of the DC Central Kitchen (DCCK).  Robert Egger, president of DCKK and a nationally recognized anti-hunger activist and other officials provided an overview of the organization and its mission.  Journalists also had opportunities to interview Kitchen students, staff members and volunteers.
