Join the Capital Area Food Bank for its Food Truck Festival and Community Day


September is Hunger Action Month and you’re invited to kick it off with the Capital Area Food Bank at its first-ever Food Truck Festival and Community Day from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 9.

Free and open to the public, the festival is being held in partnership with the DMV Food Truck Association, TwentyTables, and Robert F. Kennedy Human Rights. Guests will enjoy a bean bag toss, giant Jenga, and other games while listening to tunes by DJ Francis. And of course, you’ll have the opportunity to purchase delicious eats from your favorite food trucks.

In the spirit of Hunger Action Month, attendees are encouraged to bring non-perishable food items to donate, including cereal, peanut butter, or canned goods. The Capital Area Food Bank will also be hosting tours of its 123,000 square foot distribution center and its Urban Demonstration Garden to share how it gets nearly 40 million pounds of nutritious food to 540,000 people in our area each year.

The festival is being held on the grounds of the Capital Area Food Bank’s Washington, DC location, 4900 Puerto Rico Ave., NE. While not required, attendees are being encouraged to RSVP online.
