ABOUT US

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.

Volunteer Opportunities

As we enter our busy fall 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. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Yasmin Ibrahim at yibrahim@riseagainsthunger.org.

Upcoming Event

On November 2, the McLean Community will be hosting their 11th Annual Rise Against Hunger Experience meal packaging event. Over 1,200 volunteers will come together throughout the day to package 300,000 meals. You can donate and register here!

Partner Spotlight

We had two fantastic events during the first quarter of 2019.

Oakdale Emory United Methodist Church sponsored a 10,000 Meal Packaging Event for Cornerstone Schools in South East D.C. Students had a blast doing this service project!

Old Bridge United Methodist Church partnered with Kababayan Inc, a Filipino Community Organization, to package 25,000 meals for students in Swaziland. The turnout was great and the event was flawless!
