Cavs Care: Volunteering with the Capital Area Food Bank

About this event

All alumni, parents, and friends are invited to join the UVA Club of Washington, DC for our volunteer event with the Capital Area Food Bank. Help us sort and pack donations to be distributed to local families in need by volunteering with fellow Hoos at the Capital Area Food Bank, whose mission is to feed those who suffer from hunger in the Washington metro area by acquiring food and distributing it through its network of partner agencies; and educating, empowering and enlightening the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition.

The Capital Area Food Bank is vital to the supply chain for the procurement and distribution of food in our region and is still taking volunteers at this time. Volunteers under the age of 18 must have a waiver signed by a parent or legal guardian.

In accordance with the DC Government and CDC recommendations, all volunteers are required to wear a mask or face covering at all times in our facility over their mouth and nose. Due to our limited supply of masks, we are asking volunteers to bring their own if possible. All volunteers, guests, and staff are required to have their temperature taken by a touchless scanner when entering the food back facilities.

Event Location:

4900 Puerto Rico Avenue, NE, Washington, DC, 20017

(The best address to use for GPS is actually: 4900 6th Street, NE)

The nearest Metro station is Brookland-CUA (red line) where the center’s shuttle vehicle will be available. There is ample parking in front of the volunteer center as well.

Questions regarding this event? Please contact Laura Plattner (CLAS '04) at uvaservice@dchoos.org. Important note: please notify us at uvaservice@dchoos.org as soon as possible or cancel your Eventbrite registration if you sign up for an event and later find you cannot attend. Because these projects have specific requirements for volunteers, lack of attendance can greatly affect our ability to serve those in need.

This event will follow all pandemic-related health and safety regulations set in place by the Capital Area Food Bank, the City of Washington, DC, and the State of Virginia as of Thursday, April 29th. Please consult their respective websites for more information. Registrants will be notified of any changes to the event’s status via email from UVA Clubs.

This event is #open to all alumni, parents, and friends. #CavsCare
