Fish in the Hood

$8,095 of $10,000 goal

Raised by 219 people in 9 months
Bill White began Fish in the Neighborhood as a family business in 1996, taking orders out of a home kitchen.  In no time, orders were coming in at two or three hundred each weekend.  Our family eventually raised enough money to rent the building on 3601 Georgia Avenue.

For 20 years, we've been proud to serve great food with support from the loving people in this community.  Fish in the Hood is a special place because we offer something for everyone, our customers include doctors, lawyers, politicians and actors,  in addition to everyday people who just need a good meal.  We love our customers, and we love to give back to the community we share.

On April 14, 2017, the day before Good Friday, we were getting the kitchen ready and heard someone screaming. One of the deep friers was flaming like a blowtorch, it quickly jumped to the duct work and up to the ceiling. Luckily, we all escaped safely, including Bill's stepmother Gina, who was upstairs above the fire.

We hope to renovate and bring Fish in the Hood back in operation  (including thicker, more durable deep friers!). While insurance covers part of the costs, we need help from the community to make up the difference. 

Since the fire we have had such an outpouring of support from customers, friends and family, asking how they can help. We created this page as a resource to take donations. Thank you all for your amazing support.
