This is a new program starting in September where Abiding Presence is partnering with an organization called Food for Others. Congress’ CARES Act supplied funding for FFO to provide food & nutritional assistance to households in Fairfax, VA. Through this grant, FFO seeks to serve an additional 22,000 families by adding new Mobile distribution sites and Community Partners. FFO will deliver pre-packed boxes of produce, meat, milk, eggs, and canned goods, once a month, for about 50 families.
The September and October distributions went very smoothly and now we know we need two volunteers from 5:15 pm to 6:30 pm for the date listed below. There will be an additional volunteer from AP with knowledge of the program at Rolling Valley Elementary. FFO will deliver and unload the food. AP volunteers then add the cold items (frozen chicken, milk, eggs) to the boxes of shelf stable food. After the boxes are ready the AP volunteers will verfiy the family names as they drive up and cross their names off an electronic list in order for FFO to verify that the families reccomended for the program are receiving their food aid. After the name is checked against the list, AP volunteers will place a food box in the back seat or trunk of a recipient's car so everyone can stay distanced.
