Hunger Action Month is a month-long awareness campaign to inspire action against hunger. Throughout the month of September, AFAC will work to educate the community about food insecurity and invite all to join in the task of feeding our neighbors in need. With full plates and full hearts, you can help end hunger.
Take action and start a food drive in your community. Learn more here →
Show us how you are taking action and tag us on social media. Use hashtags, such as #afacfeeds #HungerActionMonth, #afacHAM, #fooddrive, and #volunteer4afac.

Safeway's Nourishing Neighbors Campaign
This month, AFAC is partnering with Safeway through their Nourishing Neighbors campaign to help support breakfasts for Arlington students in need. When you check out at one of three Safeways in Arlington, you can donate to this campaign to help AFAC purchase breakfast cereal for our weekly grocery distribution program.
For volunteer opportunities, visit our Volunteer page to learn more.
November & December Holidays
It's not too early to start to think about how you can help AFAC during the November & December holiday season! During those months, we usually see a higher amount of families looking for food assistance.
Learn how you can sponsor a family in need with a turkey or a chicken roaster for the upcoming holidays →
Make A Donation
There are lots of ways you can contribute to AFAC without even leaving your desk! Consider making an online donation or shop on our Virtual Food Drive. With help from donors like you, we're able to provide even more of our neighbors in need with the fresh and nutritious groceries.
