2019 Community Picnic and Market

Flyer designed by Raymond Champagne

A weekend where we all Belong: One community, two events!

Join Miriam’s Kitchen in ending homelessness through community-building and economic empowerment.

Picnic: Friday, September 20th

Yards Park, Capitol Riverfront 355 Water Street Southeast, Washington, DC

Pop-Up Market: Sunday, September 22nd

Canal Park, Navy Yard, 200 M St SE, Washington, DC

Kick off the weekend with us at our annual Community Picnic on Friday, September 20th.

The celebration continues at our Pop-Up Market on Sunday, September 22nd, in partnership with FRESHFARM.

Support local businesses, entrepreneurship, and agriculture, and help to end homelessness in DC. Browse handmade jewelry, paintings and other specialty art made by guests of Miriam’s Kitchen.

When you make a donation to an Entrepreneur, you can walk away with the satisfaction of owning one-of-a-kind artistic creation and knowing 100% of that donation will go directly to the Entrepreneur.

Cash or check preferred, ATMs nearby. Any electronic transaction fees from Square, NetSpend, Venmo and similar platforms will be added onto the donations at no cost to the entrepreneur.
