It's not just about the food!

This year, the Greg Gannon Canned Food Drive (“GGCFD”) is CELEBRATING 30 YEARS of helping to feed the hungry in the greater metropolitan Washington area.   The Greg Gannon Canned Food Drive is a Catholic Charities affiliated outreach event held each year by parishes around the Archdiocese of Washington, DC.  Parish and school families and friends go out into their neighborhoods to collect nonperishable food items which support local food pantries and shelters. This family centered event is open to all parish communities and is designed to be an easy way for volunteers of any age to work together to serve their neighbors in need. The GGCFD is the only event of its kind and is the most direct way of addressing food insecurity in the area.
