Engage with your fellow Duke alums by sorting and packing donated food items at the Capital Area Food Bank! This Duke Alums Engage activity will take place at the Capital Area Food Bank's DC distribution center.

Volunteers provide the essential first step in getting food flowing to the men, women, and children that the Capital Area Food Bank serves in the Greater Washington Metropolitan area.

The volunteer work is considered light to medium labor. Volunteers roles may include:  

  • Sorting food donations on a motorized conveyor belt.
  • Packing bags and boxes of monthly supplemental groceries for the over 10,000 seniors served by the Capital Area Food Bank's Grocery Plus and Senior Brown Bag programs
  • Packing bags of food for the 2,500 children who receive food through the Capital Area Food Bank's Weekend Bag program, which ensures they won’t be hungry when school meals aren’t available.

Duke alumni's family members (ages 12+) and friends are welcome to attend. Children, ages 12 and over, are allowed to participate, but must have a parent/guardian complete and return the Youth Waiver Form here.
