CAFB Champions

football-at-CAFBNew England Patriots Tavon Wilson, New York Giants Marvin Austin and Washington Redskins Josh Morgan spent their last few days before training camp lending a helping hand at the food bank’s Northeast food distribution center on Wednesday, July 17.
Instead of relaxing or lying on a beach, the group helped pack and sort food that will be distributed to families, children and seniors struggling to get enough food to eat right here in the Washington metro area.
The players, all D.C. Public school alumni, toured the facility and learned about food insecurity and the various food bank nutrition education programs.
Summer is a critical time for the food bank, as children are out of school and do not have access to free or reduced meals. The food bank is thankful to committed volunteers like Wilson, Austin and Morgan, who braved the sizzling outdoor temperatures to volunteer their time.
