Everything But The Turkey

23RD Annual Everything But The Turkey

SAVE THE DATE! EBTT 2019 registration opens October 23

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.
