Soup Kitchens in DC
My son and I would like to volunteer to help serve meals to those in need on Thanksgiving...does anyone know where you can get information on which kitchens or programs need help?
Here are some places that can use your help year round.
Also, check with Greater DC Cares for other volunteer opportunities. http://www.greaterdccares.org/HomePag...
Church of the Brethren (quasi-schismatic Lutheran) at 4th and North Carolina SE runs a year-round operation, something like M T,TH and F or some such. and there's always Miriam's Table as well, they'd probably be able to steer you somewhere.
I seem to recall a thread on this in 2008, you might try a search.
oh right it was me (duh), and I didn't get very helpful responses, but here's the link anyway
The DCJCC does a great event called Everything But the Turkey where you put together all the sides for local soup kitchens. You won't be serving meals but you'll be preparing them. It's a really fun environment. Check out their website for more info.
