Community

Capital Area Food Bank

Over one-fifth of Washington, D.C., residents live in poverty, a statistic which affects the wellbeing of our whole community.


To improve the lives of our neighbors, we support systematic approaches that address the root causes of the region’s largest challenges, such as hunger and homelessness, while also addressing the immediate needs of vulnerable populations. We also build the capacity of local nonprofits and appreciate the work of cultural and arts organizations whose efforts help create a more vibrant community. The Foundation is geographically focused on supporting organizations working in the Washington, D.C., region.
