Robert Egger: Fighting Hunger On Two Coasts

Robert Egger: Fighting Hunger On Two Coasts

Kojo chats with Robert Egger, the founder of the D.C. Central Kitchen, about his plans to leave Washington and begin a similar mission in Los Angeles.

For the past two decades, Robert Egger fought on the front lines against poverty, hunger and unemployment in Washington, D.C. The nonprofit he founded, D.C. Central Kitchen, provides meals and job training for those who need it in the District. And now Egger is leaving Washington to put the same model to work in Los Angeles. He joins Kojo in the studio for an exit interview about what he accomplished in D.C., and what he hopes to do in California.
