Giant Food made its annual donation of 400 hams to the Capital Arena Food Bank on April 6, for the upcoming Easter holiday. 

This donation was one of Giant Food’s contributions to five Feeding America food banks in the area. The Maryland Food Bank, Food Bank of Delaware, Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank and Blue Ridge Area Food Bank also each received at least 200 hams from Giant Food.  

“The Capital Area Food Bank does a tremendous job working closely with local food pantries and charitable organizations to help our neighbors struggling with hunger. We are pleased that these hams will be donated to families to enjoy when celebrating the Easter holiday,”  Daniel Wolk, the external communications and community relations manager at Giant Foods said. 

The Capital Area Food Bank works to address and limit hunger for nearly 500,000 people across the region experiencing food insecurity. The food bank will supply over 45 million meals to people in need this year by supplying food to hundreds of nonprofit organizations, such as Martha’s Table, So Others Might Eat and D.C. Central Kitchen, according to Giant Food.
