Volunteer

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 our DC Distribution Center for our volunteers working at our DC location during our 9:00am -12:00pm and 12:30pm-4:00pm shift only.

We pick up from the Brookland/CUA Metro, 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 sign in the front window. If you do not see the shuttle van upon arrival or if you are running late, please call 202-905-4260 to request a ride. Return shuttle service is also provided at the end of each shift.
