AFAC IS CLOSED ON CHRISTMAS DAY & NEW YEARS DAY
If you are interested in volunteering over the holidays, please remember that AFAC will be closed on Christmas Day and New Year's Day. However, we will be open the rest of those weeks. Please log into the volunteer calendar for opportunities.
AFAC is part of Arlington County's Complete Count Committee to ensure an accurate count in the 2020 Census. Help us get out the count! Look for volunteer opportunities at Volunteer Arlington. Learn more about Arlington's Census efforts here.
Social Worker Hour Volunteers
Tuesday, Wednesday, and Thursday, 1-2pm
If our clients cannot make it to distribution, their Social Worker can pick up food for them on Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday afternoons from 1-2pm. Clients sometimes accompany their social worker. We need at least 2 volunteers to help out during each Social Worker Hour. Volunteers should arrive a little early to familiarize themselves with the food stations so they can help the social workers shop. When there is a lull, volunteers can help restock our shelves. You can find these shifts on the online calendar!
Get your workout while volunteering
Ride with our staff driver on weekday mornings or afternoons to deliver food to our off-site delivery points. You'll need to be over 18 years old and be able to lift 30+ pounds. Email email@example.com for specific times to help.
Share your love for volunteering and AFAC with others!
The volunteer department is always on the lookout for volunteers who want to help on another level. Lead groups after hours in produce bagging or dry goods bagging. Speak about AFAC at outreach fairs, to youth groups, etc. Training is provided. Send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you have an interest in becoming a Volunteer Supervisor.
Create Your Own Food Drive
Not finding enough volunteer opportunities? Need something to do from home on your own schedule? Host a food drive! From our website, you can register your food drive, create customized flyers from our templates, and find some ideas to make yours a success. Consider asking your neighbors, swim club, camp, business or house of worship to join you. Our most-needed items are: canned tuna, low-sugar cereal, low-sodium soup, canned tomato products and plain pasta and rice.
We accept donated food Monday-Friday from 8:30am-4pm and Saturday from 8:30am-1pm. Questions? Please email email@example.com.
