THE STORY:

Help complete construction of an ‘urban food studio’ at the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) by helping them raise $5,000 by September 30. This urban food studio will provide critical programming on nutrition, cooking and gardening to the greater Washington, DC community.

In early 2015, the Greenbuild Host Committee and USGBC National Capital Region selected CAFB as a finalist for the Greenbuild Legacy Project. Deemed the winner by popular vote, CAFB has recieved $10,000 in seed fundng; however additional funds and product donations are needed to see the project through to completion.

CAFB’s impact in the National Capital Region is incredible. Through its network of 500 partner agencies, including churches, synagogues, senior centers and other community groups, CAFB serves over 500,000 people struggling with hunger in the DC metro area. Completion of this project will allow the organization to expand it educational offerings and further its mission of empowering and enlightening the community about the issues of hunger and nutrition.

Reflecting the guiding principles of the USGBC, the classroom structure is being constructed with reused and recycled materials, and will demonstrate sustainability practices such as rain water collection. To learn more about the project specifications, please visit: http://usgbcncr.org/greenbuild/legacy-project/

Individual or corporate donors interested in contributing more than $1,000 or donating building materials should contact Emily English to discuss sponsorship packages.
