The Children of Mine Youth Center Hannah Hawkins helped to improve the lives of countless people and her passion has left an indelible mark on the food bank and the region. 
Ms. Hawkins worked tirelessly to address the issue of hunger in Ward 8 and helped launch the CAFB’s From the Ground Up in the Community.

"The USDA estimates that in 2012, more than 1.5 million veterans used food stamps, or about 7 percent of all veterans."

Frequent moves or a parent overseas take a financial toll on those serving.

"When you look at the Hunger Heat Map on a computer, it’s immediately apparent where the unaddressed need is. Big red patches cover places like Dale City and Gaithersburg indicating hungry people who aren’t getting served. For the food bank’s executive director Nancy Roman, that visibility makes all the difference."

Sadly, many children in Prince William County miss out on meals and proper nutrition during the summer months. Shoppers Food is helping us put an end to that. #ChildHunger  
From now until the end of the summer, the CAFB’s very own retrofitted school bus will make daily stops at four Prince William County sites to serve lunch to 300 kids.

Hannah Hawkins had her own children, but no matter who you were, you knew you were a “child of hers.” 
...For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in...

Clagett Farm sells roughly half of its produce to customers in the D.C. area and donates the other portion to the CAFB.

Together we can solve hunger
Introduction
We envision a community in which everyone has access to sufficient nutritious food.

Mission
The mission of the Capital Area Food Bank is to feed those who suffer from hunger in the Washington, D.C. Metropolitan Area by acquiring food and distributing it through our network of member agencies; and to educate, empower and enlighten the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition.

Company Overview
Founded in 1980 on Martin Luther King Jr’s birthday, we are the largest, nonprofit hunger and nutrition education resource in the Washington Metropolitan area. Since that time, we have made tremendous strides to expand our services and annually distribute nearly 30 million pounds of food to more than 478,000 people through our invaluable network of partner agencies. We are committed to uplifting those in need, providing the best services possible, and helping those who are without the means to help themselves.

Beginning with the dream of helping to feed area residents who are facing or at risk of hunger, our mission has grown into so much more. The Capital Area Food Bank works to educate, empower and enlighten the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition. Our community-building initiatives, including Kids Cafe, Weekend Bag, Face Hunger, From the Ground Up, Sister Hook-Up, Produce for People, and the Brown Bag Program, educates the community about the importance of healthy diets and advocates for public policies that serve the interests of our constituencies.
