We are grateful for our community partners for this year's Hunger Banquet! As part of the event, we are asking participants to bring a food item that will be distributed to these organizations and their impactful work within the DMV.
There are 5,111 men, women, and children experiencing homelessness in our nation’s capital. Pre-pandemic, nearly one in five DC residents lives at or below the poverty line, struggling to meet even their basic needs. While the full scope of the economic fallout from coronavirus is still unknown, food insecurity in the District is expected to rise 45-60% and more than 2 million unemployment claims have been filed in the DC area.
SOME provides material aid and comfort to our vulnerable neighbors in the District, helping them break the cycle of poverty and homelessness through programs and services that save lives, improve lives, and help transform lives of individuals and families, their communities, and the systems and structures that affect them.
