Occasions Giving Kitchen

Donate Now to Feed Vulnerable Communities in DC

We are no longer accepting donations on this campaign, but there are other ways for you to support us today!

Due to the devastating impact of COVID-19, Occasions Caterers and DC Greens have partnered to provide meals to DC residents who have lost access to meals. During this time, Occasions has shifted their focus from special event catering to individual home meal delivery, meal delivery to nursing facilities, and meal access for the homeless. We are proud to launch Occasions Giving Kitchen – a program where cost-effective, wholesome meals are prepared and delivered to the region’s most vulnerable communities.

The program supports the following local communities:

  • Home-bound Seniors in various communities in Wards 7 and 8
  • At-risk quarantined individuals who are unable to seek food during home shelter
  • Health compromised individuals who have lost food services due to the crisis
  • Front-line workers who need meals prepared and delivered to them on the job

We are collaborating with DC Greens, a leading food justice and health equity organization. Funds donated on this page will go to DC Greens and be allocated to our partner organizations to immediately feed those most at risk of hunger in our community.

Please consider a generous donation to the Occasions Giving Kitchen fund so, together, we can support those among us unable to seek food outside their home and those who cannot count on access to a regular meal.

Donate today.

About Occasions Caterers
In 1986, twin brothers and co-founders, Eric and Mark Michael, started Occasions Caterers from their tiny apartment kitchen working closely with clients to create remarkable events. Occasions has grown in size but maintains a boutique approach to full-service catering with a focus on custom menus, creative décor, expert planning and gracious service.

About DC Greens
Founded in 2009, DC Greens works to advance food justice and health equity in the nation’s capital. Recognizing that disparities in food access and health outcomes fall along racial and socioeconomic lines, the organization aims to shift systems in the long-term through food access, food education, and food policy. DC Greens is collaborating with community members, nonprofits, businesses, and governmental agencies during COVID-19 to provide emergency food relief across the city.
