Hunger Heroes – February 2016
Permanent Food Drop-Off Locations
February 9, 2016
While there are many businesses and community organizations that hold food drives at various points during the year, there are six Arlington locales that have made a pledge of constant support to AFAC: Simplicity Urgent Care by Inova, Kinder Haus Toys, and the Arlington Central, Cherrydale Branch, Shirlington Branch, and Westover Branch Libraries.
These community hubs act as food drop-off points for people who live all over Arlington, making it easier to donate a can or a whole grocery bag without making the schlep across town. These permanent drop-off sites collected over 6,100 pounds of food in 2015 that have might otherwise not made it to AFAC. In addition, they direct families in need to AFAC services and help spread the word of our work throughout the community!
Non-perishable food donations are accepted year-round at the following six drop-off points:
Simplicity Urgent Care by Inova
3263 Columbia Pike, 22204
Kinder Haus Toys
1220 N. Fillmore St, 22201
1015 N. Qincy St, 22201

Thank you to Simplicity Urgent Care by Inova, Kinder Haus Toys, and the Arlington Central, Cherrydale Branch, Shirlington Branch, and Westover Branch Libraries for being our Hunger Heroes!
