Support Everything But The Turkey

A signature program of the Edlavitch DCJCC since 1996, Everything But The Turkey (EBTT) brings together hundreds of volunteers to chop, mix, grate, and prepare thousands of servings of festive Thanksgiving dishes for people experiencing food insecurity and homelessness in the DC area in partnership with DC Central Kitchen.

According to the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB), 1 in 10 DC residents (70,480 people) are food insecure, and a third of these are children. Over the course of the pandemic, there have been large spikes in the percentages of children and Latino households among those who are newly food insecure. In fact, households seeking food assistance for the first time since the start of the pandemic were 60% more likely to include children. 

This year, we are celebrating the 25th anniversary of Everything But The Turkey. Help us ensure we can keep this program going for years to come by making a donation of $25, $125, $250, or whatever you are able to give.

Your gift will go towards buying high quality ingredients our volunteers will use to create hundreds of servings of green beans, yams, coleslaw, and collard greens.
