McKenna’s Wagon to Relocate

The below memo is from Merc Fox who is working with Martha’s Table to relocate McKenna’s Wagon away from it’s current location on 4th Street NW:

McKenna’s Wagon, a mobile soup kitchen that provides meals to DC’s homeless and undernourished, is currently investigating a location for its operation over the next 24-36 months. I will be working with the Wagon to identify an appropriate location in the general vicinity of Mount Vernon Square neighborhood.

Proposed locations include the following site in NW:

Gales School & Reservation @ 1st & G & Mass
City lot @ 2nd & New Jersey & I & H
City lot @ 7th & New York & K

These sites have been identified as a potentially appropriate site because of their proximity to similar homeless outreach services and distance from residences.

Please send your questions, comments, and concerns to Merc Fox at: or Lindsey Buss at: LBUSS@MARTHASTABLE.ORG no later than April 15, 2010. Include your address. All correspondence is confidential and only for the purpose of final determination.

    It looks like they’ve reduced the number of sites under consideration. Can we confirm that this is indeed the case? I am hopeful that the sites next to the residential condo buildings and in parks are no longer on the list.
