Allison Duda

Bloomberg Fellow

Allison Duda is the DC Youth Nutrition Coordinator at Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) where she oversees CAFB’s Family Market and School Pantry Programs operating in 31 public and charter schools based in Washington, D.C. These programs provide over 350,000 meals to D.C. families each year. Allison collaborates with school system representatives, food providers, and community organizations within the DC region to implement community-driven solutions and combat hunger in schools. She seeks to integrate culturally relevant nutrition education with food access programs.  

The Capital Area Food Bank works to address hunger today and create brighter futures tomorrow for more than a million people across the region experiencing food insecurity. As the anchor in the area’s hunger relief infrastructure, the food bank provided nearly 61 million meals to people in need last year by supplying food to hundreds of nonprofit organizations. It also works in partnership with organizations across the region to address hunger’s root causes by pairing food with critical services such as education, health care, and job training.
