Ex-Cons assist with White House Easter Egg RollFor years, Jeff Ragsdale was in and out of jail, high on drugs and alcohol, and homeless.
"I've had so many chances, but this time it's really working out. I'm a little more focused than I was in the past," he said.
This weekend, he was part of a team of chefs from DC Central Kitchen who are busy boiling 6,000 eggs for the annual White House Easter Egg Roll.
After many failed attempts to get clean and hold a steady job, Ragsdale applied to DC Central Kitchen's Culinary Job Training program. He's one of hundreds of chefs who have graduated from the program, which is geared toward helping formerly incarcerated and homeless adults get back on their feet.
"It makes you feel good to know that you're a part of an organization that does so many good things for the community and to be recognized by the White House, you know it doesn't get much better than that. It makes me feel good that I can be a part of something of this magnitude."
This is third year that students and graduates of DC Central Kitchen's job training program have helped to prepare the White House Easter Egg Roll, which is hosted by President Obama and the first lady.

Why does this surprise you. Most of the Presidents Men are ex-cons or other social malcontents.
