The Capital Area Food Bank is the largest hunger relief organization in the DC metro area. As the region’s largest food hub, the food bank works with local organizations and retailers to distribute 45 million pounds of food including 17 million pounds of fresh produce, helping to feed 12% of the region’s population.
In the past five years, the food bank amped up efforts to bring in healthier food. By establishing wellness guidelines for food donations, integrating wellness throughout the organization’s daily work, and forging strategic partnerships with food donors, the food bank now is now positioned as a wellness leader. Education is at the forefront of this new horizon, with cooking and recipes as the vehicle to demonstrate healthy eating on a budget.
