RiskSpan COVID-19 AFAC Support
The COVID-19 pandemic has taken a toll on many. While hunger might not seem to be an issue in a wealthy county like Arlington, Virginia, the high cost of living here combined with the current economic situation causes many families struggle to make ends meet. In order to help those affected by this crisis, RiskSpan is hosting a fundraiser to support the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). Please contribute anything you can. No amount is too small and the impact it has is far-reaching!
Since 1988, AFAC remains dedicated to its simple but critical mission of obtaining and distributing groceries, directly and free of charge, to people living in Arlington, Virginia, who cannot afford to purchase enough food to meet their basic needs. AFAC operates under the Choice Model. This means that they try to provide clients with as much choice as possible when receiving food from AFAC. The Choice Model has been proven to reduce waste as families are more likely to eat the foods that they choose to take home and know how to prepare. AFAC is committed to distributing as much nutritious food as possible.
