Please join us on Thursday, November 7 for our Service In Sync Day project at the Capital Area Food Bank!
The Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) serves nearly 500,000 people in the Washington, DC region struggling with hunger. There has been a tremendous increase (30-100%) in those seeking food assistance due to job loss, the economy, high cost of housing, lack of health care, and other issues.
Volunteers will work in the DC Warehouse (4900 Puerto Rico Avenue, NE, Washington, DC) inspecting the donated food and sorting into bins or re-packaging into useable sizes for their partner agencies.
