We will be manning the bus from 1:30 to 3 p.m., collecting donations for DC Central Kitchen. It would mean the world to us if you came by to say hello!
We’ll be collecting canned goods and donations as part of the D.C.-wide Stuff the Bus campaign, put on by (a mobile app for local restaurant picks that you really should download) Venga. Already, Venga’s Stuff the Bus has collected more than 2,5000 pounds of fresh food for the organization. They have a goal of 5,000 pounds of food for change, and we want to help them hit that mark!
Bring your leftover hurricane/hangover food, such as canned tomatoes, canned beans, boxed pasta, granola bars, applesauce or fruit cups. Or if your cupboard is bare, stop by and donate through the virtual food market. Or, just stop by to say hello. Everyone who stops by and makes a donation gets an exclusive offer to one of Venga’s restaurant partners.
All of the food and proceeds will be donated to DC Central Kitchen, a fantastic local organization that turns leftover food into millions of meals for thousands of at-risk people in D.C. It offers nationally recognized culinary job training to once-homeless and -hungry adults, setting them up for future jobs. In addition to providing food and job training, it also provides outreach and counseling services to chronically homeless people living on D.C.’s streets.
It’s a great cause, it’s going to be a beautiful weekend, so you should come out. “Attend” on Facebook and tell your friends!
