Mission & Goals:

The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank is to feed those who suffer from hunger in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area by acquiring food and distributing it through our network of member agencies; and to educate, empower and enlighten the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition.

How your contribution helps:

There are more than 200,000 children and teens struggling with hunger in the Washington metro area. To look at them, one might not realize that of these kids, many rely on food through school breakfast and lunch programs. Because of this, they quite often find themselves without over the weekend and on holidays when school is not in session. A gift from you allows Capital Area Food Bank to feed these children through our programs like:

  • Kids Cafe, which is an afterschool enrichment program that provides healthy afterschool and summer meals to children, and
  • Weekend Bag, a program that provides take-home bags of nutritious food for nearly 1,700 children weekly. So, even the smallest of gifts can make an incredibly huge impact!
