Story

During the COVID-19 pandemic, the communities we care about need support like never before, especially small businesses and marginalized communities. Take-Out to Help Out is focused on helping LGBTQ community in Washington, DC. We are purchasing meals from LGBTQ-owned businesses that have been affected by the economic effects of the pandemic, and delivering them to nonprofit organizations that serve LGBTQ+ youth at risk of homelessness. Our first nonprofit partners are SMYAL and Casa Ruby. This program creates a double benefit by generating revenue for small businesses and by serving vulnerable individuals and showing them there are people who care about their well-being.

Organizing committee members include: Anthony Shop (chair), Thomas Sanchez, Randy Downs, Dylan Fitzgerald, Melissa Boteach, Adam Shapiro, and Meg Kilgore
