Thank you for supporting Create Food DC

Working with A Wider Circle and Art Works Now, a group of predominantly women and immigrant-owned restaurants are partnering for a pilot program to provide regular meals to 15 food-insecure families in the DC-Metro area over the course of 12 weeks, which equates to 450 weekly individual meals, including fully prepared meals and meal kits. 

Each week six restaurants will prepare meals designed by the participating chefs and restaurants in direct coordination with A Wider Circle and the families served. The meals will take into account dietary restrictions and cultural preferences, will include instructions and recipes for meal preparation, and will be delivered once a week to the families. 

Arts Work Now will develop weekly art activities for program participants that will provide participants with life enhancing, stress reducing, creative outlets. Together the food and art activities will nourish body and soul.
