Volunteers are needed! Please join us Tuesday, Sept. 11, on the National Mall to help pack healthy meals for seniors living with hunger. Register here to take part in this big event.
AARP Foundation is returning to Washington, D.C. for the 2019 Meal Pack Challenge, presented by the AARP® Credit Card from Chase. Packaged meals will be distributed by the Capital Area Food Bank to older adults across the Washington, D.C. metro area.
More than 19 percent of seniors in D.C. face food insecurity. That’s why NBC4 has teamed up with the AARP Foundation to bring together volunteers to pack one million meals.
Every year the goal is to pack more meals and unite more people in volunteerism than the year prior. AARP's Summer of Service to SeniorsSM is touring the county to help tackle the growing hunger and poverty-stricken older adult population.
