What's New

This July 4th, You Can Guide Veterans Home


As July 4th approaches, I am reminded of the many homeless guests at Miriam’s Kitchen who helped fight for the freedoms that we enjoy.

Bill, a Vietnam War veteran, immediately comes to mind. Though Bill came to Miriam’s Kitchen for our healthy meals, he is most thankful for our help getting him into supportive housing.

New Faces in the Dining Room

It sure does seem like there are a lot of new people in blue shirts in these days....

Well, that's because it’s June. And if it's summer, that means there is a new group helping out here at MK!

Each year, students, volunteers and other summer helpers arrive to support our guests. We benefit not only from their energy and enthusiasm, but also from the fresh perspectives that help us improve our work.

Five Fast Facts (and a Recipe) from Tae Min Kim


We’re thrilled to announce that Tae Min Kim has joined our team as the Manager of Kitchen Operations and Volunteers. Tae may be new to our team, but he's a familiar face in the kitchen, since he's been a volunteer Sous Chef for the past two years!

Tae will not only join Chefs Emily and Ciji leading meals services and prep shifts, but he’s also taking over the day-to-day volunteer engagement efforts.

We want everyone to get to know Tae, so here are Five Fast Facts:

How did you come to D.C.?

Thank You for Making a Difference

We'd like to thank you.

Over the past several weeks, we've asked everyone in our community to take a moment and tell our elected officials to make homelessness a priority in the 2016 D.C. Budget.

Sending an email, making a phone call, or coming to Advocacy Day might seem small. But we also know that it's meaningful.

A Bittersweet Message from the Kitchen

Dear MK Friends and Family,
 
This isn't easy to say, but after 14 wonderful years at Miriam's Kitchen, it's time for a new adventure in my life. I've decided to start a new career.

I can't tell you how much I’ll miss working with all of you.  My work was not only worthwhile, it was fun. People can glibly use the word "family" in describing a workplace, but that was the truth for me.
 
My last day is not until July 31st so I'll still see many of you, and I guarantee you my philosophy of benevolent dictatorship will not soften. :)
