Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it's the only thing that ever has.
Margaret Mead


The Capital Area Food Bank’s volunteer community is one of our most important resources. Each year, volunteers save the food bank millions of dollars while helping to feed the DMV community. When you bring a group of friends or family to sort and pack food in our distribution center, rake and plant in our garden, distribute fresh produce at our free community farmer’s markets, or offer your time in any of the other ways that that the food bank has to get involved, you’re not only spending quality time together – you’re making a positive difference in someone’s life. 

We are currently taking groups of up to 25 volunteers in our DC Warehouse. Contact us at to schedule your group today! Are you organizing a corporate volunteer group? Learn more about in-person and virtual opportunities and email us at

Please note, if you enter fake email addresses your reservation will be cancelled.  Please contact us if you need to hold additional spots before having names.

Come see how good it feels to make an impact in your community, and to have fun doing it. We look forward to seeing you soon!


Good food today. Brighter futures tomorrow.
