Capitol Food Fight 2009
We were proud when Chris Laich Music Services was asked to participate in The Capital Food Fight 2009, benefiting DC Central Kitchen, on November 11th.  Not as chefs, of course, but to provide music.
The DC Central Food kitchen is a very forward thinking charity, raising the concept of “a soup kitchen” to the next level.  The DC Central Food Kitchen acts as a central location for the DC area’s unused food, which is prepared into meals that are then delivered to social service agencies for distribution. Additionally, the DC Central Food Kitchen trains and educates homeless men and women about the food service industry, providing not just sustenance but also opportunity.

Hosted by Chef José Andrés, Chef Anthony Bourdain, and Washington Capitals owner Ted Leonsis, the Capital Food Fight “brings the food industry’s best talent together to support DC Central Kitchen’s unique brand of community empowerment. Dozens of hot restaurants serve signature dishes to guests while top chefs battle on-stage.”

As fans of Top Chef and Iron Chef, it was both exciting and an honor to be a part of an event benefiting a charity with such a strong and progressive focus on building a better community.
