Open Table at OTCC

Open Table at OTCC is a breakfast ministry that is open to all on Wednesday mornings from 6AM-8AM. It is an opportunity to serve right in our neighborhood and it is a special space where we can come together with our neighbors who are hungry and in need of a meal to start the day. Inspired by the work of our friends at Washington Street United Methodist and Old Presbyterian Meeting House (who offer breakfast on Mondays & Fridays and Thursdays respectively), we began serving on Wednesday mornings in January of 2017.

We are currently and indefinitely serving bagged breakfasts/lunches to-go rather than hosting a seated breakfast as usual. Distribution happens on Wednesdays from 6:00 a.m. to 8:00 a.m. To learn more about other emergency food access points in the city, click below to visit Hunger Free Alexandria.

Do you want to serve on a Wednesday morning from 5:30 – 8:00 a.m.? An email is sent to all volunteers at the beginning of each month. Volunteers indicate their availability and sign up for specific Wednesdays. To learn more or to receive the monthly volunteer email, contact Brian at bhoysa@oldtown.cc or using the button below.

In addition to providing a hot breakfast, people who stop by on Wednesday mornings receive a bagged lunch to go. Each week volunteers prepare peanut butter & jelly sandwiches and ham and turkey sandwiches, which they drop off at the church building on Tuesdays.
