Mission Statement

The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank is to create access to good, healthy food in every community.


In a region as large as metropolitan Washington, ensuring everyone has access to good, healthy food takes a significant community effort-which is why we partner with over 450 nonprofit organizations in DC and the surrounding region. Together, we provide 30 million meals to almost half a million area residents, every year. And because we know that food alone won’t solve hunger, we also address the root causes of hunger through multiple education programs and innovative service delivery partnerships.

It’s a big undertaking. And it’s all made possible by the generosity of our donors, the hard work of our partners, and the dedication of our volunteers and staff.
