Thanksgiving can mean hectic travel plans, finding the perfect turkeys recipe, and enjoying time with your loved ones. However, for many of our neighbors, the reality is very different. As you enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner and celebrate abundance, we encourage you to keep your hearts open to your neighbors who may be facing an empty plate.

Check out our November blog post.

Thanksgiving week is usually buzzing with energy – from last minute grocery shopping to coordinating travel plans with family, the week can feel overwhelming. However, for many of our neighbors, the feelings of stress do not come from an overabundance and juggling conflicting plans, but rather ste...

Food for Others' Executive Director, Deb, had the opportunity to sit down with the Washington Post and discuss some of our challenges and triumphs amid the buildup to Thanksgiving, one of the busiest times at Food for Others.

Compared to years prior, we've seen a 30% increase in food distribution in FY24. We are grateful for the community support we receive throughout the holidays. Many of these donations help support our pantry throughout the year.

Food stamp cuts affected over a million households in the D.C. area. Ahead of Thanksgiving, some local food banks say the need is higher than it’s been in years.

28 years ago today, Food for Others was founded by a group of community members who recognized the need and took action. Food for Others distributed over 3.5 million lbs. of food in FY23, serving over 60,000 neighbors (many multiple times). As we continue to grow in the community, we remain committed to our goal of feeding families and nourishing lives.
