Anacostia Naval Reserve Center
Anacostia Naval Air Station.

Offers inexpensive food and free lodging. Site is near the Anacostia Metro-rail Subway Station giving easy access to the Washington DC Mall.

We are advised that although the location and accommodations are not necessarily the best they are free, inside and dry. There are two fine food sources for breakfast and dinner on the base at very low prices. In addition the Navy mess facility will pack a box lunch for the mall at $ 1.90 each. You can pick them up early in the morning, too. Here are the phone contacts:
