Last week blowhard pundit Rush Limbaugh called non-profit organization employees "lazy idiots" and "rapists in terms of finance and economy" that think of themselves as "good people." Robert Egger, the founder and president of DC Central Kitchen — the one that chef José Andrés has been volunteering at for 17 years — responded yesterday on YouTube.
In the video, Egger talks about different non-profits out there that do genuine good, including war memorials, houses of worship, and museums. He also talks about his own organization — DC Central Kitchen — that recycles food, distributes meals to more than 100 local agencies, and offers culinary job training that produces 4,500 meals a day and has close to 100% job placement. It's worth watching until the end, it won't disappoint.
