Edlavitch DCJCC Parking Lot
Sonya Weisburd

What: Join us (in person) to make peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for neighbors experiencing food insecurity. This activity will take place in the EDCJCC parking lot. All CDC guidelines will be observed. Please note we request volunteers to be at least 10 years old to participate.

Why: Food insecurity has risen exponentially due to the pandemic. The District’s food insecurity rate was estimated to be at least 16% in 2020, up from 10.6% before the coronavirus pandemic, according to a new report by the D.C. Office of Planning.

When: Sunday, February 28 from 2:00 – 3:00 PM. In case of inclement weather, this activity will be canceled.
