The food bank is preparing to commemorate 40 years of service to our community. To kick off the start of this remarkable year and a new strategic direction, we’re bringing together an amazing group of our region’s leaders and visionaries for a night of music, food, fun, and impact – and it won’t be complete without you.
The 40th Anniversary Gala will feature familiar favorites from the Blue Jeans Ball, our gala from years past that’s consistently ranked as one of the area’s premier charity events by the Washingtonian, BizBash, and others. Food samples from top eateries across the region, a chance to mingle and connect with 600+ of your closest friends, live and silent auctions, and a denim dress code that won’t tie you up in knots are all among the highlights of the evening.
New this year, the Gala will also weave together meals and stories from 40 chefs and other luminaries who are sure to stimulate more than your palette. Hear the inspirations and history behind each dish, and digest new examples of how CAFB is providing culturally appropriate food for people facing hunger today, while leveraging food as a catalyst for brighter futures tomorrow.
