>Our COVID-19 response
We’re working to deliver more meals to local shelters and operating emergency mobile feeding sites across the city.
Every day with the help of dedicated volunteers, we transform 3,000 pounds of otherwise wasted food into 5,000 healthy meals for our community. These aren’t simply bags of donated groceries or crates of canned goods – they’re real meals, made by hand by graduates of our Culinary Job Training program who now work for us full-time at living wages. We then put these meals onto our fleet of trucks and deliver them to more than 80 partner agencies in the Washington metropolitan area, including homeless shelters, rehabilitation clinics, and after-school programs.
