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.
JULY 2017 UPDATE:
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.
