"Just Look for Someone in a Blue T-shirt, and They'll Help You Out."


The first time you step foot in MK’s dining room, it’s clear who can answer your questions. You just look for the people in the blue tee shirts.

One year ago, our current group of Volunteer Corps members put on their blue tees for the first time. As they complete their year of service at MK, we asked them what it’s meant to wear that uniform. As always, their insights impressed and humbled us:

The Power of Belonging: Each day, we worked to earn our guests’ trust, by creating an environment of dignity and acceptance for all individuals.

Fresh, healthy food matters to us.
 
It is the foundation of our meals program. And it’s the key behind our relationships with local farmers markets, grocers and other members of the food service and restaurant industries.

One Last Chance to Create Change in D.C.

Hey there,

Thanks so much to the MK communcity for your support this past budget season. As you may have heard, the city has approved a historic investment of $4.7 million to END veteran homelessness in D.C.

It’s an incredible victory, and we celebrate it with each of you who helped spread the word to our elected officials: ending homelessness IS a priority in the District. It may be hard to believe, but your voice made a huge difference.

A Summer Recipe: Kale Smoothies!

Breakfast at Miriam’s is the most important meal of the day. In many cases, it is the only nutritious meal our guests will enjoy in the next 24 hours.

With summer’s bounty on the brink (we received a donation of nectarines yesterday!) and temperatures rising, we decided to share with you our refreshing and nutritious Strawberry-Nectarine-Kale breakfast smoothie recipe.

A quick note about kale....did you know that a cup of kale is good for an estimated 130 percent of the daily recommended allowance of vitamins A and C? That makes it an ideal menu item for our guests.
