DC’s baddest night of doing good returns to The Anthem!

Now in its 18th year, DC Central Kitchen’s Capital Food Fight will once again return to one of our city’s most beloved concert venues, The Anthem, for a safe, in-person culinary event. Join us for an evening of fighting hunger differently – where we will reflect on our impact over the past year, lay the foundation for all the work yet to be done, and celebrate the talent and resiliency of our restaurant community. Long known as one of the region’s best culinary events, Capital Food Fight provides partners a unique and unmatched opportunity to promote brands, entertain clients, and be publicly recognized for investments in our shared community.
