Capital Area Food Bank

The Northern Virginia Christmas Market holds a major food drive each year benefiting the Capital Area Food Bank by offering 50 cents off admission to attendees donating cans of non-perishable food. Last year over 5,000 pounds of food was collected during this popular 3-day event. And, over 85,000 pounds of food have been collected in the last 10 years. Side Note: The tractor trailers you see on the highway can carry about 40,000 pounds of canned food. Thank you for your generous donations!
