Our mission is to distribute food to our neighbors in need by mobilizing our giving community and volunteers.

In our nation’s capital area, the high cost of living forces many families who are struggling to make ends meet to choose between spending money for food, or on other basic needs such as housing and healthcare. Since 1995, Food for Others has been helping many of these families.
