WASHINGTON, D.C. – In advance of Thanksgiving, Congresswoman Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) and her staff served meals at Miriam's Kitchen yesterday. As winter sets in, Norton wanted to call attention to the District's progress in reducing homelessness while focusing on the thousands who need shelter and other help.

Giving back and representing the needs of District are my sole job in Congress,” Norton said.  “While I have achieved much for the District through congressional action and have limited congressional interference in local D.C. affairs, partnering with Miriam’s Kitchen gave my staff and me an opportunity to serve those who need more.  We are particularly grateful to Miriam’s Kitchen for the comprehensive, life-saving assistance they give our residents."
