ABOUT US

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 yibrahim@riseagainsthunger.org.

Partner Spotlight

Vale United Methodist Church recently packaged its 500,000th meal! Every year, Vale UMC sells Christmas trees to raise funds for their annual 75,000 meal packaging event. The Christmas tree sale also serves as an opportunity to invite their community members to package meals with them!

Take Hunger Into Your Own Hands

Meal packaging events offer a powerful way to make a hands-on impact on world hunger. You raise the funds and rally your friends and family as volunteers, and we'll take care of the rest.
