Despite the rain, TwentyTables partnered with the Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) on Sept. 9 to host a food truck festival and community day at the CAFB headquarters. The inaugural food drive was put together to raise food for the community and bring awareness to TwentyTables’ mission to end hunger in Washington, D.C.

TwentyTables launched an app in January that connects customers with $6 lunch and $12 dinner options from local restaurants, DC reported last December. The company committed to donating five meals to charity for every 20 meals ordered on the app. Partnering charities include Capital Area Food Bank, Martha’s Table and DC Central Kitchen.

To keep pushing the giving program forward, customers used the app during the event to purchase meals, and each one was matched by RFK Human Rights and donated to CAFB. TwentyTables CEO Alexander Cohen told DC that roughly 500 meals were purchased; RFK Human Rights donated 500 meals to CAFB to match that.

The food trucks in attendance included Reggae FlavaLil MacQuiQui and more.

The event ran from 2–6 p.m. and had community games such as life sized Jenga, a DJ and face painting. To accommodate the bad weather, tents were set up for outside activities and space was set up inside of CAFB for other activities.
