On Saturday, November 19th at Bluemont Park (325 North Manchester St., Arlington, VA), DC Capital Striders Running Group is hosting “Fast Feet for Food 5K” a 5K race to benefit DC Central Kitchen. Sponsored by Speedlaces, Popchips, RoadID, Safety and Health Foundation, Fast Feet for Food 5K is to help support DC Central Kitchen during their busiest time of the year.

DC Central Kitchen turns leftover food into millions of meals for thousands of at-risk individuals while offering nationally recognized culinary job training to once homeless and hungry adults. Food for thought: the DC Central Kitchen recycles 3,000 pounds of food each day, converting it into 4,500 meals that they distribute to 100 shelters, transitional homes, and rehabilitation clinics throughout the DC area.

At the race, the DC Capital Striders Running Group will collect food donations. Please bring granola bars, individual fruit snack packs, and other healthy snacks.
