About SHARE: SHARE Food Network is a social enterprise of Catholic Charities Archdiocese of Washington. In existence for 31 years, SHARE partners with local community organizations to distribute nutritious groceries monthly for approximately half the cost sold in the average grocery store. We can pass these savings onto the community because we purchase in bulk and have the support of hundreds of volunteers committed to food equity and security. Additionally, SHARE Volunteers are also customers who give back and strengthen their communities by exemplifying smart spending practices and prioritizing an enjoyable time with family and friends as they give back and strengthen their communities
