Everything But The Turkey

22nd Annual Everything But The Turkey

This year’s Everything But The Turkey is sold out.

We are sorry if you were unable to register for this year’s program, but you can still make a difference!

Our generous sponsors – Susie and Kenton Campbell, Elise and Marc Lefkowitz, and Melanie and Larry Nussdorf and Tina and Albert Small, and their families– have challenged us to raise $15,000 for this year’s EBTT, which they will generously match. Please consider a gift today to help us meet our match – all gifts help, no matter the size!

With your help we can ensure those experiencing hunger in Washington, DC can enjoy a warm, healthy meal this Thanksgiving.

A signature program of the Edlavitch DCJCC since 1996, Everything But The Turkey (EBTT) brings together hundreds of people to chop, mix, grate, and prepare over 13,000 servings of festive Thanksgiving food for people in need in the DC metro area. We make everything but the turkey, and DC Central Kitchen, our program partner, supplies delicious turkeys.

The food we make is distributed by DC Central Kitchen to over 100 local homeless shelters, transitional housing facilities, senior facilities, and community kitchens in the District.
