New Vittles sandwiches made by formerly homeless
Update: Erin from the Central Kitchen corrected us–the sandwich makers aren’t homeless anymore. Others were in jail, and Erin describes them as “the biggest bunch of goofy, fun, hardworking felons I know.”
Vital Vittles, Georgetown’s finest/only grocery store and sundries shop has provided students with necessities like Dunkaroos and Solo cups for decades. They also sell expensive sandwiches to high-strung doctors with stress-induced hair loss. Word on the street is that doctors and students both will have a new option this fall: wraps made by men and women who used to be homeless or imprisoned.
The wraps are made by Fresh Start Catering and Contract Food Service, an offshoot of the D.C. Central Kitchen, an non-profit corporation that provides culinary education to homeless and unemployed citizens of the District.
Bravo to the bleeding hearts over at the Corp. Sure, Panebella’s pita is to die for, but an overpriced snack does some good is even better. Guilt free = calorie free.
