When everyone has enough to eat, our whole community benefits. And every day, thousands of people all over the greater Washington region get the nutrition they need thanks to our partners, volunteers, and donors. That’s the difference we’re making together.

For us to deal with student academic success, we must first take care of the basic needs of our families. We will always work to ensure our students are free from hunger. Keeping students fed is the key to student success in the classroom.
