Friends of the Food Bank is a donor service that allows you to pre-authorize your gift to the Capital Area Food Bank on a monthly basis. You can enjoy the convenience of having your monthly donation deducted from your checking account or charged to your Visa, MasterCard, Discover or American Express. No check writing. No stamps.
Q: How does it work?
A: Simply fill out the online pledge. Tell us how much you want to pledge per month, and we will deduct it from your checking account or charge your credit card. Charges take place on the 15th of each month (next business day for weekends and holidays). Then send the form to:
Capital Area Food Bank
Attn: Development Dept.
4900 Puerto Rico Avenue, NE
Washington, DC 20017
Q: What if I change my mind?
A: You can increase, decrease or cancel your pledge at any time. Simply write the Food Bank or call 202-526-5344 and ask for Development.
Q: What record do I have of my monthly pledge?
A: Your monthly statement will show the amount charged to the Capital Area Food Bank. We will also provide you with a year-end statement showing your contributions for the year.
Q: How does the Friends of the Food Bank Program help the Capital Area Food Bank?
A: More of your gift goes toward food and programs for the hungry in our community since you are saving us time and money by eliminating gift solicitation appeals and other administrative costs. You provide a reliable and steady year-round stream of resources to help us fund educational programs and provide over 1,900,000 meals each month.
