Our Daily Bread - Food Bank Needs Your Help

Recommended Posts

Guest Jeremi Mathis

With dramatic increases in hunger throughout the Washington metro region, the Capital Area Food Bank has once again stepped up to address the problem.


Introducing the Grow A Pantry (GAP) Program


The goal of GAP is to establish new pantries in the most underserved areas in DC and Maryland by providing funding, transportation and training that will help equip new sites with tools to effectively serve clients in need.


Sounds exciting right? Keep reading…


The vision is simple. We want to encourage organizations to open their doors and be a space where hungry souls can go to secure food for themselves and their families. Although the task seems daunting for small organizations which may not have knowledge about food pantry operations, we will give every organization all the necessary tools to be a successful pantry.

Our goal is plain: establish at least 50 pantries in DC and Maryland within a year and help existing partners looking to expand their capacity.


Future Generations


According to the Census Bureau’s 2010 study, there are over 680,000 individuals struggling with hunger in the Washington metro area. Friends, this should not be the case. Through the GAP program, the food bank is taking a stand against hunger for the future of our neighborhoods and community. We want you to join us in our efforts!
