Food assistance partners are not-for-profit 501(c)(3) organizations that are passionate and prepared to serve the community.

Partners receive food and health education materials from the food bank and distribute them through the Washington metropolitan area to help create access to good, healthy food in every community. There are all types of food assistance partners. They include organizations that offer food-related services like meal and grocery programs, along with organizations that focus on job training and housing assistance. The food bank supplies the food so that these organizations can focus their resources on other services.
