Lobby Day Quick Tips

Take the metro.

To get from the Omni Shoreham Hotel to the nearest metro station, walk from the hotel to Calvert Street, NW, and turn right; in less than one block, turn left on Connecticut Avenue, NW; the Woodley Park metro stop is on Connecticut Avenue and 24th Street, NW. Board the red line towards Glenmont and exit at Union Station (six stops). Give yourself 30 minutes from door to door.

The metro is $2.40 each way during rush hour/$2.10 non-rush. A taxi will cost approximately $20.00.  Let us know if you would like FRAC or Feeding America staff to accompany you on a particular visit.

When walking among the House buildings and the Senate buildings go to the basement and walk through the tunnels. That avoids going through security for each building.

Note: You cannot travel to the Capitol underground without a Member /Aide with you.

“This is ‘the big show’ for anyone working to end hunger in America. I’ve been attending for a decade, and I’m still learning something new every time. It’s easy to develop tunnel vision in our work; the policy conference opens up my thinking, and reminds me that I am part of a national movement. It can be frustrating building progress in what feel like regressive times. The policy conference renews my commitment, and reminds me how many others share it.”
