300 V Street, NW
I’m writing in the hopes you can share about the free produce distribution that Common Good City Farm is doing every Wednesday from 4pm-6pm at their farm in LeDroit Park (300 V St NW). I’m a volunteer there and want to make sure the city knows about this effort- access to healthy food is so important, especially if you’re out protesting! The farm is distributing pre-packaged boxes (for food safety/Covid reasons) of fresh, organic produce from farms around the DMV area, completely free. Last week, boxes included broccoli, salad greens, sweet potatoes, rhubarb, and more. This will change weekly, but it’s always a great selection! Read More

“I was walking past the little funeral home at 6th and Florida last night and noticed the beautiful stairs had been damaged pretty badly. I can’t figure out how exactly because there are light posts in the way, but it appears that a car wrecked into the stairs and did quite a number on them. There was still a piece of the headlight sitting on the step and the tree across the sidewalk had an big gash in it but I cannot figure out how a car got in there from the street without hitting the light post in the way.
