Good food today. Brighter futures tomorrow. Volunteer.


The Capital Area Food Bank s vital to the supply chain for the procurement and distribution of food in our region and is still taking volunteers at this time. All volunteers must sign a Waiver, click HERE to download the waiver. Volunteer under the age of 18 must have the waiver signed by parent or legal guardian.

In accordance with the DC Government and CDC recommendations, all volunteers are required to wear a mask or face covering at all times in our facility over their mouth and nose. Due to our limited supply of masks and we are asking volunteers bring their own if possible. Find more information about CDC’s recommendations regarding the use of cloth face coverings HERE.

All volunteers, guests, and staff are required to have their temperature taken by touchless scanner when entering our facilities. 

Please contact our Volunteer Department at 202-644-9822 if you have any questions or concerns.
