It’s not just about the food

For more than 30 years, schools and communities from the Archdiocese of Washington have come together to help those in need. Each December, families from across the region collect canned goods from friends and neighbors as part of the annual Greg Gannon Canned Food Drive. What started as a labor of love has grown to more than 15 communities having donated nearly 2 million food items to the hungry.
