About DC Central Kitchen’s Capital Food Fight

For 16 years, DC Central Kitchen proudly held our signature fundraising event, Capital Food Fight, with some of the world’s most renowned chefs and mixologists at DC’s top venues. Capital Food Fight will proceed on November 18, 2020. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we have determined that it is in the best interest of our guests to transform this raucous, celebrated evening into a virtual format with the same thrills, star power, and life-changing community impact that have defined this can’t-miss event for nearly two decades.
