Church Kitchens in DC, VA, and MD

Sup Chowhounders....I wanted to know from you all if you all know of any churches who are serving up food either in a restaurant capacity or a charitable "soup kitchen"-like capacity. I know Tom Sietsema of the Washington Post reviewed a church in Washington, D.C. that serves up really good food. But I also wanted to know if any other churches in Northern Virginia, Southern Maryland, and DC, who are also serving food as well. Thanks.

    There's a church in Southwest DC that has live blues bands on Mondays and live jazz bands on Fridays.

    They serve pretty good soul food at these shows.

      Thank You 4x4. I may visit the church to see how they are doing things. I really appreciate the tip.

        The music at Westminster is good (though loud--those drums really boom in that space) but the food isn't anything I'd go out of my way for.

        We were just up in Laytonsville, MD and drove by an Islamic Center that said it was having a free meal every night in Sep open to the public. I think maybe because Ramidan is over?
