Capital Area Food Bank
The Capital Area Food Bank is the largest, public nonprofit hunger and nutrition education resource in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area. Each year the CAFB distributes 45 million pounds of food, including 17 million pounds of fresh produce, to over 500 partner agencies. The Capital Area Food Bank was founded on Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s birthday, January 15, 1980.

In addition to food distribution, the CAFB has several community-building initiatives including Kids Cafe, Food For Kids, Face Hunger, From the Ground Up, Sister Hook-Up, Produce for People, the Brown Bag Program among others.


DC Hunger Solutions
Every day in the District of Columbia, one out of 10 households experience food insecurity, meaning they have uncertain or limited access to, or ability to buy, nutritionally adequate and safe food. One out of 3 D.C. children live on the edge of hunger. The Food Research & Action Center established D.C. Hunger Solutions as a project to fight hunger and improve the nutrition, health, and well-being of children and families in the District of Columbia by:

  • Informing the public about hunger and food insecurity in DC.
  • Working to boost participation in DC child nutrition programs.
  • Working to ensure better food stamp access for more District residents.


Mary's Center
Established in 1988, with funding from the District of Columbia Mayor's Office on Latino Affairs(OLA) and the Department of Health (DOH), Mary's Center addressed the demand for bilingual services to pregnant women and their infants in predominantly Latino areas of Ward One. Today, it serves multicultural populations throughout the metro Washington, D.C. region, serving individuals and families who have limited or no access to health-related services.

We envision a day when everyone will receive the highest quality of health care, education and social services. By working together, we help members of all communities be their own advocates and produce generations of leaders ready to contribute to their community's growth and well-being.
