Rise Against Hunger National Capital was founded in 2012 and serves the greater Washington, D.C. and Baltimore regions. Through 2017, more than 53,000 volunteers from local groups including companies, schools and communities of faith have teamed up to make a difference! In our region, we’re projected to facilitate the packaging of nearly 4.2 million meals in 2018. 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.

Volunteer Opportunities

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

With their hundreds of volunteers throughout the country, we have been able to send meals to all over the world through this initiative. We’re grateful for this partnership which well only serve to help us in our goal of ending hunger.
