Summit Volunteers at DC Central Kitchen

November 9, 2015 Joshua Ingber

At Summit, employees are encouraged to devote some of their work time to philanthropic endeavors. In the past, we have participated in literacy programs and back-to-school efforts. Last week, Summiteers volunteered at DC Central Kitchen (DCCK) to prepare food for those in need.

During our time at DCCK, Summit's team made spiced roasted potatoes and barbeque chicken. Watching Antoinette (our Chief Financial Officer) produce enough barbeque sauce for 5,000 meals was an exciting experience, since she used power tools to do it. Amy (our Director of Applied Statistics & Economics) and I used our statistics and econometrics skills to optimize the amount of potatoes that could simultaneously be spiced and fit on a baking sheet.

There is something powerfully engaging about the DCCK.  Maybe it is because I hardly cook, but the experience remained with me all weekend. If you are interested in learning more about the job training and anti-hunger work done by DCCK, please check them out at
