About Us

Hunger affects every neighborhood, age, race, and religion in our area. With the support of our community, we’re doing something about it.

Providing the food that people need today to build brighter futures tomorrow.

In a region as large as metropolitan Washington, ensuring everyone has access to good, healthy food takes a significant community effort—which is why we partner with more than 400 nonprofit organizations in DC and the surrounding region. Together, we provide more than 50 million meals to almost half a million area residents, every year. And because we know that food alone won’t solve hunger, we also address the root causes of hunger through multiple education programs and innovative service delivery partnerships.

It’s a big undertaking. And it’s all made possible by the generosity of our donors, the hard work of our partners, and the dedication of our volunteers and staff.

See the Impact We’re Having Our Strategic Direction

We source and distribute the food for more than 50 million meals each year.
For every $1 donated we can provide 2 meals.

We’re fueled by dedication, passion, and teamwork.

Helping the community on a large scale takes a visionary outlook and a commitment to getting the details right. Meet the team that leads with both in mind.
