Welcome to the Princeton Club of Washington - Volunteer at Miriam's Kitchen


Volunteer at Miriam's Kitchen

Help the homeless at Miriam's Kitchen on Wednesday, December 21, 2011.

The next breakfast shift is Wednesday, December 21, from 6:00am to 8:30am.  PCW needs 6 volunteers to help out that morning. If you've never been to Miriam's, this is a great chance to try out working in the kitchen and to meet some great DC volunteers.

If you have already registered to be a volunteer, please visit http://miriamskitchen.volunteerhub.com and sign up for the next shift

If you've yet to register, you will have to sign up for Miriam's online volunteer management system.  To do so, please  follow these instructions:

  1. Go to this link http://miriamskitchen.volunteerhub.com/ and register to be a Miriam’s Volunteer
  2. When they ask for your “Join Code” please put down “PrincetonAlumni1” and then when prompted again “PrincetonAlumni2” – this will get you invited to both Princeton volunteer days each month.
  3. Each month prior to one of our shifts, I will send you a reminder each month to go into your account via that link (remember your login info) and RSVP (note that there is no way to RSVP “no,” so you're only required to RSVP in the affirmative). You will notice that it may list your next two upcoming events, forcing you not only to think about your commitment this month but also the following month. Please do not casually RSVP yes -- we will rely on this system to ensure that we have enough volunteers to make breakfast each morning.
  4. When you actually sign up for a specific event, it will ask you to click on the affiliated group you are with (you will only have one choice: Princeton Alumni).
  5.  Please email Joe Kochan '02 at jskochan@hotmail.com if you run into problems or if you have any questions.

Details about Miriam's and directions to the kitchen are below.

Miriam's Kitchen

Miriam's Kitchen is a non-profit breakfast program for people who are homeless, located in the Foggy Bottom neighborhood of Washington DC. Miriam's provides a hot, nutritious breakfast each weekday morning to around 200 men and women. Founded in 1983 by a collaboration of churches and local businesses, and is housed in Western Presbyterian Church, Miriam's Kitchen has no religious affiliation. It is run by a volunteer board of fifteen, staffed daily from a pool of over three-hundred dedicated volunteers, and supported by area churches, corporations and individuals. PCW/PWN volunteers at Miriam's for the breakfast shift every 3rd Wednesday of the month.

Miriam's Kitchen is located in the basement of the Western Presbyterian Church at 2401 Virginia Ave., but the entrance to
Miriam's Kitchen is located near the corner of 24th Street and G Street. Enter through the garage, which is on 24th street. At the entrance to the garage (short driveway and garage door) is a stone pillar with buttons. Press the button that reads "Lower Kitchen," which sounds a buzzer in the kitchen and somebody opens the garage door. Walk down to the lowest level (1 level down) in the garage and around to the clearly marked entrance to Miriam's Kitchen podium and lower kitchen button and garage door. Come inside, sign in, and look for Steve or somebody who steps forward to give you instructions.

Miriam's Kitchen is located 3 blocks from the Foggy Bottom-GWU metro station.
