Our #MightyCommunity Round-Up
By: Tiffany Anzalone McCasland
At MightyMeals we’re always on the scene supporting our community and spreading our #MightyMission to get delicious, healthy and fresh prepped meals to customers in the DMV area. We’ve had a busy couple of weeks and want to thank all of our #MightyFam partners for the great work they do in our community.
College to Congress:
On May 30th, we donated 25 meals to College to Congress, an organization that is committed to providing need-based scholarships to PellGrant-eligible students so they can participate in Congress’s traditionally unpaid internships. College to Congress is a nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization that works to empower the next generation of leaders in public service and change Congress one intern at a time. Pretty cool, right? We enjoyed supporting the Intern Bootcamp, a training event for 25 participants of the College to Congress program that helps them develop the skills they need for their internships and future careers in public service.
If you or someone you know has a passion for public service visit www.collegetocongress.org to learn more about how College to Congress is creating pathways for high-achieving, low-income college juniors, seniors, and recent graduates to intern in Congress who otherwise could not afford to do so.
Black Girl Health Expo:
On June 1st, we sponsored food for 110 people which included workshop presenters, vendors and volunteers at the 4th Annual Kickstart Health & Wellness Expo which took place in Washington, DC at the Cloyd Heck Marvin Center.

Washington Redskins Cheerleaders Official Practice:
Hail to the Redskins! We provided healthy, post-workout meals to the Washington Redskins Cheerleaders at their official practice at FedEx Field on June 4th. The ladies rocked a strenuous booty band workout in preparation for the 2019 Redskins football season! The dynamic workout, lead by Chase Mckesey of TrophyBody Personal Training, Brandon Allen of FITDC and William Cole of Gym Jonez Global, focused on power, strength and conditioning specifically geared to improve the teams’ on-field performance. We are always looking for new community partners. If you would like MightyMeals to partner with you on your next event, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
