April's Pink Full Moon: Social Distancing Approved

March 30, 2020

The April full moon is commonly referred to as the Pink Moon, taking its name from a pink herb moss that flowers at this time of year.

 

April’s full moon occurs after the March equinox, making it the first full moon of spring and the Paschal Full Moon. The Paschal Full Moon is the full moon that determines the date of Easter. April’s full moon will be closer to earth than other super moons, making it the biggest and brightest full moon of 2020.

 

This year, Tuesday, April 7 is when you’ll see April’s full Pink Moon visible after sunset and it will reach peak illumination at 10:35 pm EDT.

Through Food It Forward, the public can purchase delivery meals packaged by local restaurants. The meals will then be distributed to those who need it most in the Washington area by Martha’s Table, a Washington institution with 40 years of experience supporting strong children, strong families, and strong communities. “We truly feel blessed by making what we feel is a profound connection. There are people who want to help. There are people who are desperate for food. There are people who can make this food and need work. Food It Forward is the solution.”, says John McDonnell, Chief Operating Officer of Clyde’s Restaurant Group. A meal donated through Food It Forward, supports not only local restaurants but also provides healthy food to our local community members affected by the COVID-19 Crisis.

The safety of the restaurant teams, partners, and families remain paramount to the operation. Food It Forward meets these goals by requiring participating restaurants to have rigorous cleanliness standards, multiple production kitchens, and the ability to break up team members into several strictly separated teams.

 

Contributions to Food It Forward allows restaurants to benefit from the continued business and employment of its staff and provides fresh food to the community. Visit FooditForwardDC.com for more information.
