Working at DC Central Kitchen

by Chris ’16

One of the most memorable aspects of my time in DC has been the relationships I have forged with different members of the community. One in particular was with a man who worked in DC Central Kitchen named Louis. Even though he was fairly short, his loud voice and big smile made him instantly recognizable. We bonded over our love of basketball, supported by the fact that March Madness is right around the corner. Although our conversations were not overly personal, I felt that Louis was appreciative of his work and happy to be doing what he was doing. It was evident that his positive attitude affected others in the kitchen and made it a joyful working place. In addition, this made me appreciate DC Central Kitchen more, since it had provided him with a new opportunity, or perhaps a second chance, one which he has fully embraced.
