Mission: We are a community-based non-profit that provides supplemental groceries to our Arlington neighbors in need.
Now, over 25 years after its founding, the Arlington Food Assistance Center remains dedicated to its simple but critical mission of obtaining and distributing groceries, directly and free of charge, to people living in Arlington who cannot afford to purchase enough food to meet their basic needs.
We need your help to feed all of the families in our care! AFAC currently distributes over 80,000 pounds of food to nearly 2,200 families each week and our service numbers continue to grow. Food drives are a great way to help AFAC. 40% of the food AFAC distributes is donated to us. The food we’ll get from your food drive helps keep our costs down and provides us with the kinds of food we need. Food donations are tax deductible; donated food is valued at $1.70 per pound. Your food donations will be weighed and you will receive a receipt at the time of drop-off. Food donations of 100 pounds of food or more will also receive a tax receipt by mail. AFAC needs help collecting the following Heart Healthy items:
- Low sodium tomato products (diced, paste, & sauce)
- Low sodium canned tuna
- Low sodium canned beans
- Low sodium canned vegetables
- Low sugar cereal
