Food Pantry Program & Community Service Committee

Community Service Committee

Co-Chairs: Lois Bowman and Lillian Wade

BNA-GWDCA has a “distinguished legacy of community service”. In keeping with the philosophy and mission of the NBNA, Dr. Joan E. Smith, Vice President of BNA-GWDCA spearheaded the partnership between BNA-GWDCA and the DC Food Pantry Program to address food insecurity in school-aged children, particularly middle school. In a very short turnaround time, the chapter collected toiletries and non-perishable items to fill 2 pantries.
