Thousands will flock to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center on November 22 to celebrate the gratitude of the season over a meal with friends and neighbors. Safeway and Events DC mark their 18th year of giving thanks through a Feast of Sharing.
The Feast of Sharing is a District-wide community event for people in need, senior citizens and other DC residents interested in fellowshipping with others. Feast of Sharing includes a plated holiday meal prepared by Convention Center’s exclusive caterer Centerplate, a community services and health expo, live entertainment, and door prizes. Events DC stakeholders are welcome to attend this free pre-Thanksgiving event.
We are so grateful for the generosity and ongoing commitment of Safeway and other local partners who make this important event a bountiful Thanksgiving tradition in the District.Read more
You’re not alone if the holiday months bring visions of leftover Halloween candy, your Thanksgiving feast, cookie-decorating parties, and Champagne toasts. Unfortunately, the stretch from late October to New Year’s Day can also leave chocolate-filled, gravy-covered, and bubbly extra weight on our bodies.
By stepping up your activity level now, you can enjoy your seasonal favorites and still stay fit. And doing that is as close as the starting line for three fun runs – all benefiting good causes – coming up at RFK Stadium.Read more
We all have at least one can of old paint taking up space in our garage or shed. You know – the paint you thought you’d keep around to use on your next project or to fix marks on your walls? Well, now that you’ve changed your color scheme and no longer need that shade, you can’t just put it out on the curb with the rest of your trash because wet paint can be dangerous to the environment unless properly disposed. It contains materials that can leak into the ground, hurt sanitation workers, or contaminate septic tanks. So, what are you supposed to do with it?
Bring it to our Paint Drop-Off Recycling Event next month!

Community Spotlight: Friends of Fort Dupont Ice Arena
This month’s spotlight features the Friends of Fort Dupont Ice Arena (FFDIA), a nonprofit formed by DC residents in 1996 to prevent the arena’s closure. Parents and friends took over and revitalized the Ward 7 facility, building offices, adding a meeting room, and refurbishing the lobby and concession area. The FFDIA also formed Kids On Ice®, a program providing free ice skating lessons and equipment to kids from 5 to 18.
We are excited to have Ty Newberry, Executive Director, join us this month to tell us more about FFDIA and their work within the DC area.Read more
