The Spanish Catholic Center DC offers holistic services to immigrants from all around the world, including frequent food distributions!
Come stand in solidarity with those accessing our services by transporting and unloading bulk food packages in preparation for Wednesday food distribution events. Now more than ever we need volunteers to assist our operations as an increasing number of people in our community rely upon local food donation centers to feed their families. By volunteering with Spanish Catholic Center, you are helping to address food insecurity in DC and ensure vulnerable community members have access to nutritious food.
When: Every other Monday prior to a Spanish Catholic Center Wednesday Food Distribution from 2:00pm-5:00pm
Location: Spanish Catholic Center:1618 Monroe St NW, Washington DC, 20010
