Every year, hundreds of companies support the food bank. Partnership with the food bank provides the opportunity for collaboration and a shared sense of contribution to our community. And with many people working remotely over the past year, employee engagement is more important than ever.
In-person Volunteering at the Capital Area Food Bank:
Volunteering at our DC distribution center provides the essential first step in getting food flowing into the community. Volunteers assist with sorting food donations and packing emergency and senior food boxes along our motorized conveyor belt. Volunteer work is considered light to medium labor.
Ready to bring a group?
1. Consult our calendar to determine when might work for your company.
2. Once you have a date, reach out to Megan Curran, Partnerships Engagement Manager, to make a reservation. (IMPORTANT: You must contact the food bank to make a group reservation. This helps us accurately manage the number of volunteers required for each shift.)
3. Recruit your co-workers!
Season’s Feedings Showdown:
Your corporate team can make a huge difference this holiday season by joining the food bank’s Season’s Feedings Showdown!
The Season’s Feedings Showdown is a friendly holiday fundraising competition between companies across our region to support the Capital Area Food Bank. It’s easy to participate, and the impact is real.
If you join in, we’ll create an online fundraising team for your company to collect monetary donations now through December 31. We’ll also send you a toolkit with language to email team members, a small poster for your breakroom, stat sheet, and more. Plus, we’ll provide tips and leaderboard updates throughout.
After the holidays, the winning team will receive the first-ever Season’s Feedings Showdown trophy to display with pride.
