The Luther Jackson Middle School food pantry will stay open this summer with your help! The LJMS food pantry directly supports the families of our enrolled students, and will extend that support to families from our feeder elementary schools as well as Falls Church High school. We have several volunteer opportunities available, and the signup is organized by date. Please consider signing up to be a regular volunteer for one or more of the following tasks:
Pantry Volunteer - 4 Volunteers are needed every Monday, Thursday, as well as alternating Tuesdays. Volunteers will help sort through the donations and organize food in the pantry. Volunteers will also help keep track of inventory and report stocks to Jenna von Elling on the Thursdays before distribution weeks. Tuesday volunteers will help package and bring out food to families.
Target donation pickup (Mosaic) - This is a large donation of both shelf stable and fresh food that needs to be picked up on Monday and Thursday mornings at 8:00 AM and delivered to the school. Need 2 people with SUVs or vans to deliver to door 5 at the school.
Panera donation pickup (Mosaic) - Donation of bread, rolls, bagels and sweets needs to be picked up right before closing time at 8:50 PM every Monday and Thursday evening. Volunteer will need to bring food to the main entrance of school the following morning. Typically 2-3 boxes.
Caboose Brewing donation pickup (Mosaic) - Donation of 6 grocery bags of fresh milk, eggs and chicken to be picked up on Wednesdays after 1:00 and delivered to the main entrance of the school.
Grocery Pickup- We will supplement donation packages with groceries purchased from Aldi and Giant. Sunday evenings before distribution days, volunteers will pick up pre-paid grocery orders and deliver to door 5 of the school on Monday morning.
THANK YOU to the community partners continuing their support of the pantry over the summer - Food For Neighbors, Food Rescue US, MOMs Organic Market, Caboose Commons and the Vienna Foodies.
