DISTRIBUTION SUPERVISORS NEEDED FOR TUESDAY EVENINGS

AFAC plans to open a second evening for food distribution starting this November. We are looking for volunteers to serve as supervisors on Tuesday nights, 6:15-8:45pm, weekly, bi-monthly or monthly. Year long commitment preferred. Spanish-speaking volunteers welcome. Read more –  supervisor job descriptionevening distribution description. Email laura.jackson@afac.org to volunteer or with questions.

WEEKEND SUPERVISORS NEEDED

AFAC is looking for people willing to supervise other volunteers as they bag produce on weekend afternoons. AFAC receives thousands of pounds of beautiful produce donated by local farmers markets. Volunteers unload the produce from the van as it arrives, refresh and clean it, and then bag it for distribution to AFAC’s 1,500 client families. During the winter and early spring, weekend volunteers bag rice, oatmeal or purchased produce, sort food donations and do other  tasks.

We are looking for volunteers who can make a commitment to help 1-2 times per month from May-December. Supervisor hours are noon-2:30 on Saturday or 1-3:30 on Sunday. Supervisors should be comfortable directing other volunteers. Training will be provided. For more information, contact Laura Jackson at laura.jackson@afac.org.

If you’re looking for a way to get more involved at AFAC and a way to help ensure that our clients have access to fresh, healthy produce, this is a great volunteer opportunity for you.

New Distribution Site

Because of our supporters…

AFAC was able to open an additional distribution site in the 250 unit Woodland Hills apartment complex. This complex houses many area seniors and our presence increases their access to nutritious and health-conscience foods. With your help, AFAC is now distributing food at seven of Arlington’s low-income senior living centers.
 
Seniors are the fastest growing client population here at AFAC and make up 30% of the individuals in our care. The generous response to our Bob Cooper match campaign allows us to answer the increasing calls for our services. Woodland Hills and all of our other senior center distribution sites have been made possible because of our supporters’ dedication to our mission to help feed our neighbors in need. Thank you!   
 
Thank you to Our Lady Queen of Peace, Kol Ami,and many other volunteers for going to USDA-Beltsville Agriculture Research Center these past two Saturdays to help harvest corn. We harvested 4,395 lbs of corn for AFAC clients! A big thank you to Don Weber, USDA researcher and AFAC volunteer (and his staffer Tony), for allowing AFAC to harvest from his research fields.

AFAC would like to recognize some special first-time donors. Jake and Charlie Herbst have been saving up their allowance and tooth fairy money for months, and thought that we would be able to help those less fortunate. (Their sister Rosie donated artwork.) We are grateful for these special young donors.

Meet Rosy B, an AFAC client

I found out about AFAC through my calligraphy work. I became interested in how it helped folks in the community in 2012. With the loss of one of my major calligraphy clients I found myself in an unexpected position. My sister and I own our home and have lived in Arlington for over 40 years but we found it very difficult to pay our real estate tax bills in addition to utilities, medicine and other expenses. As 2012 moved on, it became obvious that we had to pay those household bills first, and unfortunately, food became a second priority.

 

The money situation finally got so bad that by November 2012, we barely had a can of food in the cupboard nor a carton of milk. I investigated the criteria for The Arlington Food Assistance Center right before Thanksgiving and applied for acceptance at the Arlington Department of Human Services. The people at the Department were very courteous, efficient and knowledgeable, and soon I was in the AFAC program, choosing Gunston Community Center as my pickup location.

 

Upon my first visit to Gunston and AFAC, I did not know what to expect. I was a bit nervous and it was the Thursday night before Thanksgiving holiday. But I had no reason to be apprehensive because the folks distributing food there were gracious, helpful, witty and just generally nice to me, a newcomer! They asked me what I needed in the way of milk, bread, eggs, vegetables, fruit and canned goods and they helped me pack it all into my bags. They even had a BIG SURPRISE for all us, namely a Thanksgiving turkey! It was a very positive experience and I continued to go down to the center nearly every Thursday night after that until May 2012. I don’t know what I would have done without their help during a very difficult time in my life. I will always be grateful and supportive of their efforts and kind hearts.

Thank you!
Thanks to everyone who supported AFAC at the County Fair. Special thanks to Julie Damore who painted the back drop for our photo booth.

Vermont St. The featured film will be “A Place at the Table,” which looks at American families facing food shortages. $5 donation requested.

 Harvesting Crops: As we reach the peak of the growing season, we will be gleaning on a regular basis. We intend to glean nearly every Saturday morning from now through November 2nd. We are almost always finished by noon. Gleaning is fun for the whole family and can be a nice way to show your children where their food is grown. However, it can be unpredictable since we depend upon the schedule of farmers, the weather, and crop availability. As opportunities become available, we will add them to ourvolunteer calendar. Please check it frequently as there can be lots of changes! 
Stop and shop at the Virginia Square Giant (3450 Washington Blvd.) on Saturday and Sunday from 12-4pm, drop off some needed food donations and say hello to AFAC’s Young Professionals who will be staffing the collection bins outside. Hunger does not take a break in the summer!

Fort Barnard Garden Open House and Featured Volunteer – Dena Jones

Ft. Barnard Community Garden – Open House – Saturday, July 20th from 10am-1pm

In April 2013, the Ft. Barnard Community Garden was awarded a $4000 grant from the Mrs. Meyers Clean Day Fund. The Ft. Barnard grant supports a pilot project on behalf of AFAC and proposals suggested by the Arlington Urban Agriculture Citizen’s Task Force.  In addition to improving the garden’s existing compost system and extending the gardening season, this project will test nomadic gardens on pallets and straw bale gardens to determine the appropriate soil medium and growing conditions. At the Open House, you can visit the Master Gardener help desk, see a demonstration on beekeeping, tour many different gardens and learn how the gardeners maintain their plots. The garden is located on Walter Reed Drive next to Fire Station #9. For further information, please see this flyer or contact Susanna McIlwaine: smcilwaine@verizon.net or Cindy Gossman: cindyjoyhuman@yahoo.com.
