Make Food Work

Make Food Work: A Strategy to Strengthen the DC Food Workforce creates a road map for improving job quality and expanding career pathways within the District’s food workforce. Created with support from Kaiser Permanente, the report is a collaborative effort of the DC Food Policy Council, DC Office of Planning, Workforce Investment Council (WIC) and Department of Employment Services (DOES). We gained invaluable insights throughout the process from workforce training providers, businesses, and community organizations.

The FPC also partnered with DC Central Kitchen on the accompanying Employer Guide to Promoting Workforce Development in the Food Industry. This guide highlights best practices that DC food businesses use to support their workers, increase retention, and grow leaders.
