Join members of Ascend on January 23rd
as we volunteer to pack bags for the Capital Area Food Bank's Weekend
! This will be a fun, exciting opportunity to get to know other Ascend members and give back to the DC area community.
Children relying on
school breakfast and lunch are especially vulnerable when school is not
in session over the weekends. The Weekend Bag Program works with schools
and community centers in DC, Maryland, and
Northern Virginia, to provide food to children considered "at-risk" of
hunger in our community over the weekend. The Weekend Bag is part of
Feeding America’s national BackPack
and provides bags of groceries for children ages 5-18.
Optional: Sponsor families for only $5 each!
While a donation is not necessary to volunteer for this event, your
ability to help us sponsor a few additional bags would be helpful. Each
5-7 pounds of shelf-stable food and always consists of at least two
kid-friendly snacks and two breakfast items, as well as a meal to
supplement the family, which is comprised of a protein, grain,
vegetable, and fruit. A sample menu might include two packs
of oatmeal, fruit cocktail, spaghetti noodles, meatballs in tomato
sauce, tomatoes, green beans, cereal bar and an applesauce cup.
