According to the United States Department of Agriculture, one out of every eight D.C. households cannot afford or does not have access to nutritionally adequate and safe food.
The WHC Hunger Project is working hard to lower that number. And to date, our efforts have produced over 1,000,000 meals.
Volunteers – adults, children, individuals, families, and groups – put on hairnets, gloves, and aprons and carefully measure and package ingredients that become over 10,000 nutritious meals for the underserved in our area. Our packing events are tikkun olam at its very heart, and the meals we pack are on people’s tables within a week.
Volunteers are always welcome! We look forward to sharing this experience with you and your family.

Celebrating an important life event—a new child or grandchild, a second b’nei mitzvah, a special anniversary or birthday? Looking for a b’nei mitzvah project that benefits the community? WHC Hunger Project is the perfect way to commemorate these milestones.
With as few as 15 people, we can create a special food packing event to help you celebrate your milestone with tikkun olam. You can even bring a cake or food for your festive celebration. Events can be held at either Temple or JBSC, and volunteers ages 4 and up are welcome.
A commemorative Hunger Project packing event will make your life cycle event truly memorable. We plan our schedule far in advance so it’s never too early to get in touch with us about a special event you’d like to have.
