Mike Curtin calls himself Washington, D.C.’s food fighter. It’s a title he earns every day by feeding the city’s needy through his organization, DC Central Kitchen, a nonprofit located just a few blocks north of the U.S. Capitol. Curtin’s staff takes leftovers found at local restaurants, wholesalers, and farms and converts those items into more than 5,000 meals a day.
