More than a thousand hungry people gathered at the Washington Convention Center this morning to eat and share memories during the 16th annual Safeway Feast of Sharing.
D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton and D.C. Councilmembers Jack Evans, LaRuby May, Vincent Orange and Brandon Todd were in attendance to celebrate the event.
“I’m always happy to be here for the Feast of Sharing to celebrate and give thanks for all the many blessings we have in our great city,” Bowser said, addressing the crowd. “I want to thank you for all the trust in the faith that you’ve put in me to focus on the things that are important to Washington D.C.”
Those in attendance dined on a traditional meal of turkey, mashed potatoes, rolls and other Thanksgiving trimmings and were served by hundreds of volunteers.
