We will meet at the Ulysses S. Grant Memorial, located between the US Capitol building and the Capitol Reflecting Pool, and the walk will extend to the Lincoln Memorial. On the way, this 2.2 mile (3.5 km) one way walk along the National Mall and Reflecting Pool will pass by the Washington Monument, World War II Memorial, the Smithsonian museums and castle as well as either the Korean War Memorial or the Vietnam Memorial (or both if desired). If people need to leave early, a shorter 1.5 mile (2.4 km) walk option is possible from the Capitol to the Washington Monument. The Capitol South metro station includes the orange, silver, and blue lines and is located near the US Capitol building. The Smithsonian metro station, which also runs along the orange, silver, and blue lines, and is located near the Washington Monument.
As the nation’s first and leading community kitchen, DC Central Kitchen develops and operates social ventures targeting the cycle of hunger and poverty.
We fight hunger differently by training jobless adults for culinary careers and then hiring dozens of our own graduates to prepare the 3 million meals we provide for homeless shelters, schools, and nonprofits each year. Our ventures also prevent the waste of millions of pounds of nutritious food, expand access to healthy, local options in urban food deserts, and scale our model nationally through strategic partnerships with colleges and universities.
