Join hundreds of volunteers to spend the evening preparing Thanksgiving side dishes for those experiencing hunger and homelessness in our region - we'll make Everything But The Turkey! Our program partners at DC Central Kitchen then add turkeys and distribute the meals to homeless shelters, transitional housing facilities, and other social service agencies in the District.

Sign up for a spot to make Green Beans, Kickin' Coleslaw, Collard Greens, Yummy Yams, or NEW this year - Apple Crumble! Each table fits 8 people - no exceptions please. No cooking experience is necessary.

There are no age restrictions on participating but we do not recommend the Kickin' Coleslaw, Yummy Yams, or Apple Crumble recipes for children under the age of 10 because they involve using knives, peelers, and graters.
