WHAT: Join hundreds of volunteers to spend the evening preparing Thanksgiving side dishes for those experiencing hunger and homelessness in our region – we’ll make Everything But The Turkey! Our program partners at DC Central Kitchen then add turkeys and distribute the meals to homeless shelters, transitional housing facilities, and other social service agencies in the District. Each table fits 8 people – no exceptions please. No cooking experience is necessary. There are no age restrictions on participating but we do not recommend the Kickin’ Coleslaw, Yummy Yams, or Apple Crumble recipes for younger children because they involve using knives, peelers, and graters.

WHERE: Edlavitch DCJCC

REGISTRATION: Please note that we request a tax-deductible donation of $20 per person to cover the costs of this program in order to ensure that we are able to purchase high quality ingredients. Please contact Mira at msmith@edcjcc.org if this poses a barrier to participation.
