Loaves and Fishes Newsletter

Welcome to Miracles, the Loaves and Fishes newsletter! This is the program’s way of keeping our friends and supporters up to date on happenings at the program. It’s also a periodic reminder that we need your continuing support of our work serving those of our neighbors who need a free hot meal on Saturdays, Sundays and federal holidays.
Independence Day is the unofficial start of summer. It’s a time when friends gather to celebrate what makes this country great by sharing a meal together. For the past three years our guests at Loaves and Fishes have had the good fortune on or around the Fourth to enjoy a barbecue lunch from Red, Hot and Blue provided by the local chapter of the Kiwanis Club.
Peter Sacco and co-chair Natalie Szemetylo led the Kiwanis Club team this year as it served a festive buffet lunch to a hundred or more guests on July 1 of ribs, coleslaw, and macaroni and cheese (We thought the mac and cheese was particularly appropriate to the day on which one might warble the patriotic standby, “Yankee Doodle went to town, a-riding on a pony. He put a feather in his cap, and called it macaroni.”)
The Loaves and Fishes Program is most grateful for the ongoing support from the Kiwanis Club of Washington, D.C., and its President-elect Jessica Petro for this annual celebration in our dining room.
