D.C. Chapter Miriam’s Kitchen Service Event - April 29

Monday, April 29
6 – 8:15 a.m.

Miriam’s Kitchen
2401 Virginia Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C.
(Foggy Bottom)

The Washington, D.C. Chapter will volunteer for a breakfast shift to prepare and serve a healthy, homemade breakfast for 150 homeless men and women. Volunteering is fun, upbeat, and is a great way to get involved with the D.C. community while learning cooking skills.

Ashley Lawson ’07 has worked at Miriam’s Kitchen for nearly six years planning events, managing individual and corporate fundraising, and directing their volunteer program. She also moonlights as a writing instructor for their poetry program for homeless guests!

Miriam's Kitchen provides healthy, homemade meals and essential social services to more than 4,000 homeless men and women each year. Their volunteer base has grown to more than 2,000 volunteers who work on a regular basis to serve guests.

Closed-toe shoes, long pants and a T-shirt or long-sleeve shirt are required. For your safety, sandals, shorts, skirts, dresses and tank tops are not allowed. If you're working in the kitchen, you'll need to have something covering your head. Feel free to bring a hat of your own.

For safety reasons, children under the age of 21 are not allowed to volunteer at Miriam's Kitchen.

This event is limited to 14 volunteers.

Advanced registration is required by Monday, April 22. To register, email elonindc@yahoo.com.
