The “OneCan” campaign is designed as a program that will engage additional churches in the struggle to eliminate “Hunger in America.”  We are attempting to make it impossible for anyone to not be involved in this struggle. The cost of participation in a “one-can” of food to be donated to the Capital Area Food Bank. 
“Food insecurity” is a term defined by the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) that indicates that the availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food, or the ability to acquire such food, is limited or uncertain for a household. USDA also reports on “very low food security”, which occurs when one more people in the household were hungry over the course of the year because they couldn’t afford enough food. USDA monitors the extent and severity of food insecurity in U.S. households through an annual, nationally representative survey. According to USDA's report: Household Food Security in the United States, 2011

12.6 percent of all households in the District of Columbia were food insecure in 2009-2011. That's an increase from 2005 - 2007, when 11.9 percent of all households were considered to be food insecure. (The change was not statistically significant.)
Among the 12.6 percent of District of Columbia households struggling with hunger, 4.4 percent were considered to have "very low food security." People that fall into this USDA category had more severe problems, experiencing deeper hunger and cutting back or skipping meals on a more frequent basis for both adults and children.

  Facts on Food Access - Access to affordable healthy food is a challenge for many District   
Along with hunger, lack of access to healthy food contributes to obesity and poor health outcomes.
Wards 7 and 8, which have the District's highest poverty rates, also have the city's highest obesity rates and are home to large "food deserts."
Of the city's 43 full-service grocery stores, only two are located in Ward 4, four in Ward 7, and three in Ward 8. By contrast, Ward 3 - the highest-income Ward - has eleven full-service stores.
Few of the city's 30 farmers' markets are located east of the Anacostia River.
