  • McKenna’s Wagon Drivers and Helpers

    McKenna’s Wagon (section)

    McKenna’s Wagon, our mobile food service, goes out 365 days each year to distribute warm meals, sandwiches, and healthy snacks at two downtown locations. Volunteers serve food, drive the van, and unload supplies each night.

    Noted below are the adjustments made to our operations, effective March 6th, 2023.

    • The driver and helpers are to report to the Maycroft at 1474 Columbia Road NW at 4:30 pm (please enter through the alleyway at the intersection of 15th St and Columbia Rd)
    • Drivers can park their personal vehicles in the alleyway for the duration of the shift.
    • Helpers are allowed to ride in the van to each location. Masks are required to be worn by each person.
    • The van will depart from the Maycroft at 4:45 pm.
