Kate, Bob, Danica and Sari are just a few more examples of the amazing Miriam’s Kitchen frontline workers, who have gone above and beyond to help keep our guests experiencing homelessness safe, healthy and informed.

They literally meet guests wherever they are in our 33 square mile coverage area (nearly half of DC) to provide essential supplies and critical care.
