Join the Capital Area Food Bank and help us strengthen and fill in gaps in the hunger safety net under the Greater Washington Area. The CAFB works with a network of 700 partner agencies to source out over 40 million pounds of food and we can only do it your help in our DC Distribution Centers. The minimum age to volunteer is 14 years old. This project is metro accessible via the Brookland Metro station on the Red Line.

This project typically involves packing and/or sorting donated food. It also can include packing for CAFB programs, and assisting with various other tasks at the food bank. All of these tasks are considered light/medium labor and typically involves standing up for up to three hours and lifting up to 35 pounds. This activity will take place in either our Food Donations Room or Repack Room and the temperatures can fluctuate, so please dress for the weather and wear closed-toe shoes.

In the event of inclement weather, please call 202-644-9841. If the food bank is closed, volunteer projects will be cancelled.

The closest metro station is Brookland/CUA Metro, which is accessible on the red line. A CAFB shuttle van will pick up volunteers from the Brookland/CUA Metro Station Monday through Saturday at 8:45am for the 9am-12pm shift. The shuttle van will be near the elevator on the 10th street side of the metro station where other shuttle buses/vans are servicing the metro station and will have a Capital Area Food Bank sign in the front window. If you do not see the shuttle van upon arrival or if you are running late, please call 202-905-4260 to request a ride. Return shuttle service will also be provided at the end of each shift.
