Season of Giving

This week, Ayrshire Farm, located in Upperville, Va., delivered 5,000 lbs of certified organic, certified humane, heritage breed turkeys to be used in the 4,500 Thanksgiving meals DC Central Kitchen will prepare and provide to area shelters, agencies and non-profits across the city.

The heritage breed turkeys, in addition to dozens of turkeys donated by United Praise Youth Choir, McKean Defense Group, Lockheed Martin, AMYX, Federal Schedules and City Year, will be accompanied by sides prepared by DCJCC’s Everything but the Turkey event.  In its 11th year, DCJCC volunteers will prepare 9,500 servings of sweet potatoes, green bean casserole, stuffing, coleslaw and harvest bean salad.  For dessert, 450 pies baked by volunteers from the Beauvoir School and Georgetown Day School will be served.  

That's what Thanksgiving is all about!
