In March 2021, PEC hosted its first ever Quarterly Keynote, a series of webinars featuring different speakers and topics each quarter of the year.
DC Central Kitchen’s Mike Curtin spoke about the important role local food systems play in addressing food insecurity. DC Central kitchen uses career training, job creation, and sustainable business practices to strengthen local food systems and reduce disparities in health and economic opportunity. The organization’s life-changing social ventures include providing culinary job training to at-risk adults, turning wasted food into balanced meals for shelters and nonprofits, and serving healthy, scratch-cooked meals in low-income schools.
