As families across the country struggle with reduced Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits, we have seen a huge increase in demand for food from our food pantry here in Annandale. At the same time, we’ve all seen the increased prices for food overall which is depleting the funds we’ve set aside for fresh foods. Although we had very successful food drives in February, our shelves are bare.
Can you help? We need:
- Cash to purchase fresh foods. Donate online through the Catalogue for Philanthropy
- Nonperishable foods – We collect food donations Tuesday-Friday afternoons from 1:30 pm – 4 pm, with the exception of County Holidays and other scheduled closings. The ACCA food pantry is located at 7200 Columbia Pike (trailer separate from the day care center) in Annandale (next to the fire station). Please do not drop off food if a volunteer is not available. What we need.
- Volunteers to pick up food from the pantry and make local deliveries – fill out the volunteer interest form.
- Volunteer to shop for perishable foods one week each month – fill out the volunteer interest form.
Please share this information with your family, friends, and neighbors. Thank you all for your ongoing support for those in need of food!
