Last year, staff and volunteers provided groceries to thousands of hungry people, feeding an average of 8,409 people each month.
We distribute grocery bags consisting of a five-day supply of food adjusted to household size. Eligible clients are residents of the District of Columbia and have incomes of 200% or less of the federal poverty line. Eligible clients may receive three days worth of food each month, picking up at either center.
