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.

Store your baggage at the hotel or at Union Station.

Union Station Baggage Storage is available near Gate A, Amtrak concourse (hours are 6:00 AM to 10:00 PM).  Go to Tiburon Lockers for rates and other information.

“I’ve been attending the National Anti-Hunger Policy Conference for over 10 years now and each year the content has been relevant to the policy work I am currently doing and informs the work I will begin. I leave inspired and with a pocket full of new tools, new allies and renewed inspiration for the hard work that waits for me back at home.”
