AARP DC Food Drive Combats Hunger with 7600 Meals

In the District of Columbia, almost one in two children under age 18 are at risk of hunger, and so are 40 percent of households with seniors. The Capitol Area Food Bank says demand is outpacing their supplies.
 
Oct. 22, District of Columbia residents responded to these alarming facts by donating 7,683 pounds of food to the food bank during the 2nd Annual AARP DC Food Drive. The food collected will provide 7600 meals to individuals and families.
 
More than 1,000 people donated, and more than 90 volunteers and AARP staff accepted, non-perishable food outside nine Safeway and Giant grocery stores. There was at least one Food Drive collection store in each of DC’s eight wards.

Below is a list showing how much food was collected at each store:
