We wish to provide a service experience for families to put their faith into practice by collecting nonperishable food items in their neighborhoods and lessening the food deficit in the DC metropolitan area.
Our goal is to collect more food for Washington area hungry by expanding the number of drives we organized each year. Through our outreach opportunity we will raise awareness of the hunger needs of the greater Washington DC community and share the message that we are all called to serve our neighbors.
We have experienced tremendous response as we share our outreach opportunity with new faith communities. Our potential growth is daunting and thrilling! Early predictions of the increase in number of volunteers and food collection, have us reaching another milestone by 2020…the collection of our 2,000,000th can of food. It took approximately a quarter century to collect a million cans, but our potential growth could help us reach the next million…in the next three years. We are excited as we look to the future of the GGCFD to know how many we can serve.
