  • $500 for the purchase of food for McKenna Center Greg Gannon Food Pantry

This is how we are making it happen!

  • Established a buying relationship with Safeway on Connecticut Ave for shelf stable food
  • Set up a Command Center at Capital Crab & Seafood in NW to stage food donations and create pantry packs
  • Recruited a team of volunteers to assemble food packs and make safe deliveries of all donations to pantries
  • Continuing our partnership with Catholic Charities to fill the gaps to meet the needs of the food insecure

We are looking for volunteers to help distribute the food throughout the metro area.
