Event: It’s That Time of Year for…Jazz in the Garden!

Guests may purchase food and beverages from the Pavilion Café and its carts located around the Garden or bring their own picnics. Alcoholic beverages may not be brought to the premises from outside and are subject to confiscation. Security officers reserve the right to inspect all items brought into the Sculpture Garden. For the safety of visitors and works of art, access to the Sculpture Garden will be limited if the space becomes too crowded.

Join the Food Revolution Today, #eatREAL!
The ‘eat REAL’ campaign, designed by the United States Healthful Food Council (USHFC), has partnered with the Jamie Oliver Food Foundation to encourage consumers to celebrate Food Revolution Day TODAY by standing up for real food by eating at a REAL Certified restaurant.
Food Revolution Day is the annual culmination of Chef Jamie Oliver’s campaign to get people better connected to their food. Today, communities across the globe will come together to celebrate fresh ingredients, share cooking skills, pass on food knowledge and eat great food.
“Food Revolution Day is all about people power…” said Chef Jamie Oliver, “…the Food Revolution has reached 75 countries, and we’re hearing about some really exciting plans for Food Revolution Day, which proves that the demand for better food education is a global phenomenon.”
The ‘eat REAL’ campaign, which USHFC launched in April 2013, is promoting the Food Revolution Day initiative by encouraging people to dine out on Friday, May 17 at one of the following 19 REAL Certified restaurants in the Washington, DC area: Busboys & Poets (all 4 locations), Commissary, Elizabeth’s Gone Raw, Energy Kitchen, Founding Farmers (DC location), Grillfish, i Ricchi, Juice Joint Café, Logan Tavern, Restaurant Nora, Ris, ShopHouse Asian Kitchen, Soupergirl, Table, The Heights and The Pig.
Reservations for most of these REAL Certified restaurants can be made by visiting OpenTable.
SUPPORT: #blog4good Goodwill of Greater Washington
This week, we are celebrating Goodwill Industries Week. In 2012, Goodwill directly affected the lives of more than 3,200 of our neighbors. These are people who have re-found the dignity that comes with being a contributing member of our society. Goodwill also diverted over 20 millions of trash from local landfills through their donation program.
In addition to training people for jobs, placing them into jobs, providing consumers with access to quality, low cost goods, and acting as one our region’s largest recyclers, Goodwill is also a job developer. With each new store and donation center that Goodwill opens, 25-30 new jobs are created.
Goodwill of Greater Washington’s mission is summed up by its tagline - “Transforming lives and communities”. Now you know how they do it.
