Join the EDCJCC to mix, chop, and prepare food for homeless shelters and other agencies serving those in need in the DC area.

No cooking skills are necessary! Individuals of all ages can participate, but children under the age of 14 must be accompanied by an adult.

The food prepared during Hunger Action is distributed to over 88 social service agencies by DC Central Kitchen, our program partner.

Feb 10 @ 10:30 am – 12:30 pm

Join fellow knitters and crocheters to make handmade goodies for a great cause! Our goal is to contribute as many warm winter items as possible to distribute to individuals experiencing homelessness in the DC area.

All levels of knitters and crocheters are welcome.  Don’t know how to knit or crochet? We’ll teach you!

What should I bring?

Please bring your own needles/crochet hooks. If you are not already working on a warm winter item and are looking for a great project or just starting out, please bring:

  • #8 or #10 knitting needles (circular or straight) or a size H crochet hook
  • Patterns you’re working on or want to start

What do you supply?

We provide lots of beautiful yarn, several patterns including hat patterns using #17 needles or a size N crochet hook, and experienced knitters and crocheters to teach anyone who would like to learn how to knit or crochet.

If you can’t join us in person, join us in spirit by knitting or crocheting:

  • Hats
  • Scarves
  • Gloves and Mittens
  • Socks or slippers
  • Other items to keep people warm during the cold winter months
