Beyond Bread: Talking Turkey

~Do you want to do something nice on Thanksgiving, but you got busy and waited until the last minute? 14th & You has got your back!

~Holiday Helpings, our annual drive to provide complete holiday meals to over 10,000 low-income residents in DC is getting some press. Our local ANC gave a nice shout-out, as did our local Washington Post. Are you interested in supporting our efforts? It's not too late, and it's extra easy!

~Bread for the City also got some help from WaPo the other day because of the nutrition initiative we launched in September. Pretty cool stuff.

~Many thanks to DCist for linking to our awesome pictures of the Help the Homeless Walk (which, by the way, went really well). Thank you to everyone who came out to support such a good cause! A second thanks to them for their continuing coverage of DC Central Kitchen's cool new partnerships.

~Marc Fisher's got an insightful article on Housing First, and the cuts that are being made because of the deficit this year.
