Get More at Lunch!

On November 5, 6,  and 7, DC foodies will be able to enjoy free extras at city food trucks, all while supporting the Capital Area Food Bank.
Capital One Bank has paired up with several food trucks in the city, as part of their Get More campaign.
That means two things will happen: lunch customers will get more food for their money, and Capital One Bank will be donating more money to the food bank.
Each day, a different food truck will be offering a delicious promotion, thanks to Capital One Bank, which is covering the cost. DC Empanadas, DC Slices and Curbside Cupcakes will each be serving up specials, all in the name of supporting those who suffer from hunger in our region.
“Capital One Bank is proud to partner with the Capital Area Food Bank to help keep their food pantry stocked for those in need,” said Celia Edwards Karam, the Washington, D.C., Market President for Capital One Bank.
“This has been a challenging year for many in the D.C. area. At a time when food needs are increasing and supplies are running low, supporting the Capital Area Food Bank is one more way that we – and our customers – can make a real difference in our hometown.”
On Tuesday, November 5, DC Empanadas will be at Farragut Square, offering a free empanada to anyone who buys two for $5.
“We’re local, we grew up in the DC metro area,” says Anna Leis, co-owner of DC Empanadas. “The Capital Area Food Bank is a great charity. People are going through hard times, and if we can do a little bit to alleviate that, we want to help.” Leis says both her and her husband do their small business and personal banking with Capital One, and are happy to be pairing with their bank.
For every dollar spent at DC Empanadas on the Tuesday deal, the bank will donate one dollar to the Capital Area Food Bank. It’s all part of the bank’s Get More campaign.
Deals 500
On Wednesday, November 6, DC Slices will be at McPherson Square, with a buy-one-get-one-free deal.
The lunch crowd will be able to satisfy their sweet tooth on Thursday, November 7 with a buy-one-cupcake-get-one-free offer thanks to Capital One Bank through Curbside Cupcakes, which will be at 901 New York Ave.
In addition to covering the cost of the lunch deals, the bank is matching all sales of those deals dollar for dollar, up to $10,000.
The Capital Area Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization serving the greater Washington region.
Each year, we feed 500,000 neighbors struggling to meet their basic needs for food.
Capital One Bank’s commitment to the community will help the 1 in 6 people in the Washington region who do not have enough food to sustain a healthy life.
