Learn. Care. Act.

People just like you helped Capital Area Food Bank last year with a donation of more than $2.2 million. They didn’t write a check. They donated their time.

Volunteers come from all types of places:

  • Individuals
  • Families
  • Corporate groups
  • Religious groups
  • School groups (children must be 12 or older)
  • Civic groups

Shuttle Service

The Capital Area Food Bank provides shuttle service for volunteers working at our DC warehouse during the 9:00am -12:00pm and 1:00pm – 4:00pm shifts, Monday-Saturday.

We pick up from the Brookland/CUA Metro stop, which is accessible on the red line. The shuttle arrives on the 10th Street side near the Metro elevator where other shuttle buses/vans are servicing the Metro station and will have a Capital Area Food Bank logo on the vehicle. The shuttle picks up at 8:15am and 8:45am for the morning volunteer shift, and at 12:45pm for the afternoon volunteer shift. If you do not see the shuttle van upon arrival or if you are running late, please call 202-327-1929 to request a ride. Return shuttle service is also provided at the end of each shift.
