GivingTuesday 2022

JOIN US TO FEED HUNGRY KIDS IN THE DMV

This #GivingTuesday, help us provide more nourishing meals to those in our local community who need our assistance this holiday season.

A recent study conducted by Capital Area Food Bank found that 1 out of every 3 people in the Greater Washington Region does not have enough food to feed themselves and their children on a daily basis. Rising rents, access to child care, uncompetitive wages, and escalating food costs continue to fuel hunger.

It is more critical than ever that children have access to nutritious meals and ongoing nutrition education to keep their developing bodies and minds strong. 

Please help us reach our fundraising goal of $25,000 on #GivingTuesday so that together we can provide thousands of free meals to food-insecure children and families in the DMV.
