Join us for a tour of the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). For over 25 years, AFAC has distributed groceries to needy Arlington families, seniors and children. Currently, more than 2,200 families are assisted each week. We will tour the warehouse where incoming deliveries, sorting, packing, and volunteer coordination take place. Learn about who is served and how they qualify, where the food donations come from, what goes out to recipients, and the many community events sponsored by AFAC such as Empty Bowls, healthy cooking demonstrations, and community gardens.

The tour will last approximately 45 minutes. After the tour, for those who are interested, we will head to nearby Shirlington for Happy Hour at Cheesetique, 4056 Campbell Avenue. Because of space restrictions in the warehouse, the tour is limited to the first twenty people who RSVP. Please RSVP by July 14. You may RSVP by replying to this email at (register@arlnvil.org) or by calling the office at 703-509-8057 – be sure to include the name of the event and name of each attendee, along with their email and/or phone number. Open to Members and Volunteers.
