What is your neighborhood doing to be part of the solution?

Neighborhood Captains is a community engagement initiative of the Capital Area Food Bank that invites schools, businesses, churches, neighborhood clubs and friends to be part of the solution to end hunger – a problem that impacts 1 in 6 of our neighbors in Washington, D.C.; Montgomery and Prince George’s counties in Maryland; and Northern Virginia.
