With the mission to serve every student, regardless of income, freshly prepared meals while at school, The Central Kitchen is committed to meeting our kids where they are. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic and during times of distance learning, The Central Kitchen transitioned to preparing, sorting and executing curbside distribution allowing our students consistent access to food. Completing the kitchen build in 2020, The Central Kitchen aims to become fully staffed and serve nearly 30,000 meals a day when at capacity.
An operation like the central kitchen could never happen without the work done by our outstanding community partners. Their partnerships with us are just a fraction of their continued work in their communities, and together, our work is strengthening the farm to every fork vision in Sacramento.
