As part of an initiative by the Washington Redskins Charitable Foundation, Redskins players worked along-side chefs at the DC Central Kitchen in Washington, D.C., on Tuesday.
Redskins At D.C.
Helping raise awareness about hunger, poverty and homelessness, Redskins players Randy Thomas, Chris Horton, Chad Rinehart and Devin Clark helped prepare the more than 4,500 meals per day that the kitchen serves.
Donning white aprons over Redskins shirts, players helped clean vegetables, slice up onions, peel carrots and cut up meat, among other tasks.
All of the chefs at DC Central Kitchen are graduates of the Culinary Job Training program, which equips former homeless persons with professional and life skills.
After working with the chefs, players enjoyed lunch with the chefs and staff of DC Central Kitchen.
