AFAC clients LOVE and are very thankful for fresh produce! Please sign-up to join us to help our neighbors in need. Invite friends & family too.
For the past 11 years, RAC has served the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) by being in charge of Sunday afternoon pick-ups at the Columbia Pike Farmers Market (corner of Walter Reed and Columbia Pike – by the Rite Aid), and bringing the produce back to AFAC to sort & bag.
If you have volunteered in the past, this year will be a bit different. We will NOT be picking up from the farmer's market but we need volunteers to bag produce. To limit contact, we recommend signing up with a group of people that you live with or have regular contact with. It's best for family units/households to sign up together on one Sunday. We will try our best to maintain social distance.
Everyone will meet at AFAC (2708 S. Nelson St., Arlington VA 22206) from 1:30-3:30 to bag produce. Volunteers should wear closed toe shoes, work clothes, hat, and mask. Hair must be covered by a hat or provided hairnet. Closed toe shoes are required in the warehouse. Gloves will be provided. It's helpful to bring a refillable water bottle.
Kids are welcome but they must be accompanied by an adult. We find that the activity is best for kids ages 12+. Younger children are welcome but should be monitored closely for safety.
