CAFB DOES NOT FOLLOW FEDERAL GOVERNMENT GUIDELINES FOR INCLEMENT WEATHER DECISIONS. For a status update, call 202-644-9800 or check the scrolling weather list on ABC Channel 7 news. If CAFB delays opening, pickups and shopping slots are pushed back by that amount of hours. In the event of weather closure, no pickups, shopping slots or deliveries will occur. We will contact you to reschedule.

Capital Area Food Bank food assistance partners receive access to donated products, fresh produce and USDA emergency food commodities, which allow them to redirect funds normally spent on food to other social service programs.
