Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC)



Contact
2708 S Nelson St
Arlington, VA 22206
(703) 845-8486


Description
AFAC is an independent, community-based non-profit food pantry that provides dignified access to nutritious supplemental groceries to all their Arlington neighbors in need. In doing so, AFAC makes it possible for vulnerable families in their community to devote their limited resources to financial obligations such as housing, utilities, and other basic needs. 

AFAC currently distributes over 1 million pounds of groceriest to needy Arlington families. Nearly 40% of their clients are children, and 10% are senior citizens. In addition, they distribute a box of standard items through the Department of Human Services to help those in immediate need of food.Program:General DistributionBudget: NaNCategory: Food, Agriculture & NutritionPopulation Served: Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General Program Description: General Distribution is an essential part of AFAC’s services. At any one time they have over 2,200 active referrals. They help the families who rely on us in a manner that respects their human dignity without making judgments about how they have come to need their assistance. Any family or individual needing food assistance may visit AFAC for the first time without a referral. They are given food as well as information on how to continue receiving services by obtaining a referral from a preferred peer agency.  Most referrals last a period of 12 weeks before requiring renewal. Exceptions are made for their elderly individuals who maintain their referrals for one year before renewal. AFAC’s distribution center is open to families and individuals every Monday to Friday, from 10:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m., Thursday evenings from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m., and Saturday mornings from 9:00 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. Each family is given approximately 40 pounds of groceries each week including fresh chicken, eggs, and milk.  Other food items regularly distributed are rice, pasta, oatmeal, and a variety of canned goods.Program:Seniors OutreachBudget: $509,096Category: Food, Agriculture & NutritionPopulation Served: Aging/Elderly/Senior Citizens Program Description: Seniors Outreach is AFAC’s hunger action program that distributes nutritional food supplies to our elderly clients. In FY10, the Arlington County Agency on Aging reported to AFAC that food insecurity was a growing problem among the elderly in Arlington County. Many aging individuals and families are living on limited and fixed incomes. Often when faced with a strained budget and the need to pay bills, buy gasoline, or purchase prescription drugs, the elderly attempt to cut expenses by cutting back on food.  In addition, research revealed that the elderly tend to buy food that is inexpensive, filling, but rarely supportive of a healthy diet. In response to the Agency’s findings, AFAC took the initiative to set up distribution networks at the five low-income senior-living facilities in Arlington County.  Food provided to residents there may include low-sugar and low-sodium products, fresh fruits and vegetables, eggs, chicken, and milk. In FY11, nearly 10,000 elderly families received food assistance deliveries from AFAC, enabling them to maintain their housing, address their budget needs, and feed themselves well.Program:Backpack BuddiesBudget: $87,127Category: Food, Agriculture & NutritionPopulation Served: Children Only (5 - 14 years) Program Description: AFAC’s Backpack Buddies program provides food for Arlington County’s public school children who are homeless or in unstable home environments. For many of these children, their lunchtime meal at school is their only meal each day. Over weekends or holiday breaks, these children often go with little to no food. On Fridays at their school, each child in the Backpack Buddies program is given a backpack filled with nourishment for the weekend. Items usually distributed in the backpacks are soups, ready-to-eat meals, snack bars, fruit cups, and canned vegetables. The backpacks are returned to their school on Monday and redistributed to the children the following Friday. Children and families who benefit from the Backpack Buddies program are able to spend more quality time at the table and less time worrying about where to find their next healthy meal.
