Beyond Bread: The Holiday Helpings Express

~Some of you might have noticed that Bread for the City's Holiday Helpings campaign is featured in a couple different news sources today! Many thanks to Mayor Fenty for dropping by to help us distribute turkeys this first week, and another thanks to the Washington Times for a really nice write-up about our efforts. The Express (impossible to link to) and the CityPaper also gave brief coverage. For more information on our work to distribute over 10,000 complete turkey meals to low-income families, read Valentine's earlier post.

~A couple days ago, Greg and I had the pleasure of hosting an American University class here at Bread for the City. This was a chance for us to talk about some of the broader issues related to poverty in DC, and answer questions about our work. All in all, it was a great time, and a couple of those students have blogs related to their class.

~The Falls Church News-Press had a really nice story about a group that helps feed the homeless in Virginia. Heartwarming stuff.
