In 2014 over 500 people showed up to the 1st Annual 11th Street Block Party and BBQ Cook-off. It was an incredible event that brought the entire community together. This year it’s going to be even better! There will be: Music. Photobooth. Job Preparation Assistance. Dance-off. Kids Activities. BBQ Cookoff. Cookie Contest. And much, much more.
Our first block party Block Party was a community affair with gifts and prizes provided by Metro Mutts, TD Burger, ArgonautDC, &pizza, Taylor Gourmet, Vendetta, Le Grenier, Schneider’s of Capitol Hill, Washington Nationals, Biergarten Haus, Bardo, Liberty Tree, H Street Coffeehouse, and Smith Commons. We even had Timothy Dean of Top Chef fame.
We seek to serve the surrounding community by bringing together residents, some of whom have lived in DC for over 50 years and others who arrived less than 5 months ago. The Table Church food pantry served over 20,000 pounds of food to the homeless last year and over 3,500 pounds in January of this year alone.
