Bread for the City (BFC) is excited to announce its annual Holiday Helpings program, a nearly thirty-year tradition that supports area DC families in need through the holidays. Last year, the program transitioned from its tradition of giving out turkeys and other staple holiday food items to embrace a necessary direction to better support over 16,000 DC households by providing critical monetary resources. In alignment with last year’s progression, BFC will work this year to increase its support in communities hard hit by the COVID-19 pandemic.

The murder trial of Derek Chauvin ended yesterday with an appropriate yet atypical measure of accountability: guilty on all counts. Still, justice is far from done. George Floyd, whose life was taken over a $20 bill, is still gone, and in the weeks leading up to today’s verdict, the murders of many others including Daunte Wright, Adam Toledo, and in the DC area, James Johnson and Dominique Williams were all committed by police officers.
