This Thanksgiving, Special Counsel is cooking up meals with Miriam’s Kitchen!
At Special Counsel, we have the honor of helping clients and candidates find work every day of the year. We cherish our local relationships and our offices love to be involved in making our neighborhoods a better place. This year, Special Counsel is teaming up with Miriam’s Kitchen to give back to the city of Washington DC.
Miriam’s Kitchen advocates for chronically homeless individuals in the Washington DC area by providing fresh, healthy meals and high-quality social services to over 3,500 individuals each year. Miriam’s believes the solution to ending chronic homelessness in DC is permanent supportive housing. In addition to serving meals and social services, the organization places individuals in permanent supportive housing and ensures they have necessary support to remain there.
As of January 2012, there are 1,870 chronically homeless individuals in Washington DC on any given night.
For 30 years, Miriam’s has served the homeless community of DC. Each day, volunteers cook around 300 meals for guests. Professional chefs create a 6-course menu for under 80-cents a meal thanks to generous donations from farmers markets and grocery stores. Miriam’s Kitchen focuses on hospitality. A napkin, silverware, and flowers adorn every seat, and each guest is welcomed as they come through the door.
The organization is nearly 100% privately supported and received less than $30,000 from government sources to fund programs in 2011.
On Friday November 15 and Monday November 25, our Washington DC Special Counsel office will be serving dinner at Miriam’s Kitchen!
