Capital Area Food Bank
In a region as large as metropolitan Washington, ensuring everyone has access to good, healthy food takes a significant community effortâwhich is why we partner with over 450 nonprofit organizations in DC and the surrounding region. Together, we provide 30 million meals to almost half a million area residents, every year. And because we know that food alone wonât solve hunger, we also address the root causes of hunger through multiple education programs and innovative service delivery partnerships.
