Working to End Summer Hunger

Too many children across the DC region are at risk of hunger, and for some, school may provide the only nutritious meals they receive on a given day. When summer break starts, kids lose that critical lifeline, making it harder for them to continue learning and growing. 

That’s why the Capital Area Food Bank supports sites throughout our community where all children can get free, nutritious meals all summer long.

Last year, we provided more than 56,000 total breakfasts, lunches, suppers and snacks across our meal sites — and we expect to provide thousands more this year! 

Every child deserves a healthy, happy and hunger-free summer.
