Rise Against Hunger National Capital was founded in 2012 and serves the greater Washington, D.C. and Baltimore regions. Through 2018, more than 76,800 volunteers from local groups including companies, schools and communities of faith including the Korean Central Presbytarian, Christ Church Fairfax Station and the McClean Community have teamed up to make a difference! In 2018 alone, this region engaged volunteers to package nearly 4.3 million meals. We’ve been fortunate to send meals to countries such as Malawi, Peru, the Congo, Mozambique, Nicaragua, El Salvador, Honduras and more. The National Capital team is always looking for new opportunities to engage our local community! Contact us today to set up a meeting.
Every other week we host volunteer nights at our warehouse in Ashburn. We are always looking for volunteers willing to stack boxes, clean equipment and help us with general upkeep. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Yasmin Ibrahim at email@example.com.
