I am not someone who buys a lot of frozen dinners. We’re trying to be good locavores, and to avoid lots of the weird additives that get put into prepared foods, so our freezer space tends to be reserved for ingredients.
But DC Central Kitchen, already one of my favorite local charities, might just get us to budge a little. They’re launching a line of frozen meals made with local ingredients from recipes donated by local celebrity chefs like Roberto Donna and Jose Andres.
Local food AND social responsibility, conveniently located in my freezer, is worth a try. The meals will be sold in local Wegmans and My Organic Markets, as well as a few other local outlets.
