Beyond MoCo: Free Thanksgiving Lunch at Bus Boys and Poets on 14th St in DC

by MCS Staff

Busboys and Poets is offering a free sit-down Thanksgiving meal for the homeless, hungry, or anyone who needs one between 12pm and 3pm today (Thursday, November 24th) at its 14th and V location (2021 14th St NW, Washington DC 20009).

Reservations are not required and anyone who needs a meal may come to the restaurant and have one.Per Busboys and Poets: “This is where it all began, on 14th & V streets NW, in 2005. Our founder Andy Shallal was active in the addition of the name “Langston Hughes Way” on V street between 13th and 14th streets to pay homage to the poet Hughes, where the inspiration for the name Busboys and Poets comes from. 14th & V is located in the U Street Corridor neighborhood, known as “Black Broadway” in the 1920s, and is a major center of DC’s cultural, artistic and progressive activist scene. Inside is Shallal’s best known mural ‘Peace & Struggle’ in the events space The Langston Room.

Kudos to Busboys and Poets foe continuing to not only be an important presence in our community, but a necessary presence. Thank you to the owner and staff who will probably miss eating with their families in order to uplift, feed and share with the least fortunate in our community.
