Hidden History Tour of the Capitol Building Area! Saturday, August 21!
Fill fridges around the DC, Maryland, Virginia community with nutritious, restaurant prepared meals. Donate here: https://www.4giving.com/F05B Feed the Fridge is an effort to bring nourishment where there is hunger while helping small, local restaurants stay in business. All meals are free for community members to take. No sign-ups and no questions asked. All of the money raised is poured back into the local economy because we pay local restaurants for every meal that stocks the fridges. Our donors saw the impact we were making on the community during the pandemic. We delivered meals to the elderly who could not leave their homes. We expanded as quickly as we could to get meals right to the people. Donors should support Feed the Fridge because we are feeding the local community while supporting the local economy. We use the restaurant's expertise to bring the meals directly to the people. Your neighbors are hungry and they need more than a box of raw goods from the food pantry. Many people are unable to cook for themselves. Our program provides nutritious meals without the shame of waiting in line to possibly be turned away because all of the boxes have been taken. We stock our fridges every week day. #DMV #hungerrelief #feedthehungry #foodinsecurity
