During the Spring, Summer and Fall months, local farmers generously donate their excess produce to AFAC at the closing of the Farmers’ Markets. We are currently at the following markets:
Sunday – Westover Farmers’ Market
Sunday – Columbia Pike Farmers’ Market
Sunday – Fairlington Farmers’ Market
Tuesday – Crystal City Farmers’ Market
Thursday – Ballston Farmers’ Market
Saturday – Arlington Farmers’ Market at Courthouse
Volunteers can help us in several ways. Volunteers who are authorized to drive our vehicles take our vans to the Farmers’ Market. Other volunteers meet our drivers at the market to help unload and pass out crates to the vendors and load the vehicle back up with donations. Back in our warehouse, we have volunteer produce bagging teams that help bag up these donations to prepare them for our distributions during the week. If you have any interest in these opportunities, please fill out our volunteer profile form.
Are you comfortable giving instructions to other volunteers? We are looking for volunteers to serve as Produce Bagging Supervisors. Supervisor hours are 12-2:30 pm on Saturday or 1-3:30 pm on Sunday. Commitment to help once or twice a month from May-December preferred. For more information, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
