Rise Against Hunger National Capital was founded in 2012 and serves the greater Washington, D.C. and Baltimore regions. Through 2019, more than 98,500 volunteers from local groups including companies, schools and communities of faith including the Korean Central Presbyterian, Christ Church Fairfax Station and the McClean Community have teamed up to make a difference! In 2019 alone, this region engaged volunteers to package nearly 3.9 million meals. We’ve been fortunate to send meals to 30 countries including 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.
As we prepare for our busy spring season, we will be hosting weekly 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. Ready to get started? Please complete our volunteer interest form and we’ll be in touch soon! If you are interested in hosting a meal packaging event, please fill out the form below.
