Help Us Reach the Finish Line!


We have been working over the past month to refurbish our kitchen, which was badly in need of a face-lift.  We have added new flooring, walls and storage, and updated equipment so that we can more efficiently prepare the tens of thousands of breakfasts, lunches, dinners and snacks for the children in our programs as well as dinner, including a hot soup or stew, for hundreds of people every day.

The job of revamping our kitchen became much easier when Buchanan Ingersoll & Rooney stepped forward to help fund these crucial renovations by matching donations from their employees, other businesses, and the community. With the goal to secure funding for the majority of the $100,000 kitchen renovation project, Buchanan pledged to match donations, up to $30,000.

We need your help to reach our goal. If you would like to make a donation towards our kitchen project, please visit and click on the red DONATE button then click on the blue DONATE NOW button and follow the prompts.  Please be sure to write “Kitchen” in the dedication block.  For more information please contact the development office at 202/328-6608 x224 or e-mail
