Metro-accessible Volunteer Opportunities

Join the Edlavitch DCJCC and Federation’s Mitzvah Hoppin’ to prepare delicious and nutritious Thanksgiving side dishes for those facing hunger and homelessness in our community. 

Come chop, mix, and prepare Thanksgiving-themed food that will be distributed by DC Central Kitchen to those in need in the DC area. Presented in partnership with EntryPointDC, Young Leadership of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s Mitzvah Hoppin’ and Federation’s Jewish Food Experience®.

$15 to cover the cost of food and supplies, plus an apron to take home.

Mitzvah Hoppin’ is a program of Young Leadership of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington and NEXT DC (the DC-area Birthright Alumni Network) that promotes the Jewish value of tikkun olam (repairing the world) by providing young adults with volunteer opportunities in the local community.

Everything But The Turkey (EBTT) is an event organized by the Edlavitch DCJCC’s Morris Cafritz Center for Community Service, where volunteers prepare Thanksgiving-themed side dishes that help those experiencing hunger and homelessness in the District enjoy some Thanksgiving warmth and cheer the week of the Thanksgiving holiday. We run the program for three days to allow more people to be able to enjoy it – including a special edition for families with young children and one just for young professionals in the city.

Cost: $15
