Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC)
Sign up here for a Saturday afternoon volunteer opportunity at the AFAC warehouse. Join us on the first Saturday of the month from 12:30-2:30. Volunteers will meet at the AFAC warehouse and bag produce, rice, beans for later distribution to clients. Volunteers must be at least twelve years old, wear close-toed shoes, and a hat or hair net.
St. Michael's actively supports the mission of Arlington Food Assistance Center: To feed our neighbors in need by providing dignified access to nutritious supplemental groceries. Food insecurity is an ongoing problem for many residents in Arlington. Since the beginning of COVID-19, AFAC has experienced a 45% increase in referrals. Through financial contributions, volunteer shifts at the warehouse, and food drives, St. Michael's partners with AFAC in serving the greater Arlington community.
St. Michael's Sunday Food Drive tomorrow, Sept. 27!
