Building Brighter Futures Capital Campaign

Through the Building Brighter Futures campaign, we’re building a modern, efficient facility that meets demand in the community today and enables us to better serve our neighbors into the future.


The Capital Area Food Bank has been serving northern Virginia from the same facility for over 30 years. Even before COVID-19’s impacts, our Virginia warehouse was far too small. And during the pandemic, our region experienced dramatic increases in hunger that required us to push the aging warehouse to its extreme limits.

Today, there are still more than 1.2 million people across greater Washington who are facing food insecurity and need help. The needs of our community have changed and grown – and now, we’re doing the same.

Benefits of a new building

The new building’s added size, upgraded equipment, and modern technology will enable CAFB to distribute far more food, including greater amounts of nutritious produce from local farmers.

The larger and more flexible space will also improve efficiency across CAFB’s entire distribution network by allowing deliveries to come directly to Northern Virginia (vs. via our DC distribution center), helping us improve service across the whole DMV region. 

Help Us Complete Our New Warehouse

Thanks to the generosity of so many in our community, we’re almost our total fundraising goal. But we need your help to raise the final $1 million that will allow us to finish the new building!

Your gift today will help to get millions more meals out to those who need them. Will you join us in Building Brighter Futures?
