Arlington County Holiday Food Drive Dec. 8-12

There have been a few articles in area publications about food banks and families needing food for this upcoming holiday season. It is a tough ecnonomy for a number of families and Arlington Village is not immune to this.

Providing food is a good way to share, and help your neighbors. Please consider helping if you are able to do so --

The below is from the Arlington County Website:

Arlington County Holiday Food Drive Dec. 8-12

Help "Take a Bite Out of Hunger" for the holidays -- for the more than 1,000 families who reach out for food assistance in Arlington every week... a number that is growing.

December 8-14, 2008 is "Arlington Takes a Bite Out of Hunger Week." Most major County facilities will have donation boxes for food donations to support the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC). Help us help those who are in need by donating non-perishable items:

Canned Goods
Peanut Butter

Where to donate

Most major County public facilities are accepting donations.

Join us for the presentation of the collected food on Tuesday, Dec. 16 at 6:30 p.m. in the County Board Room, 2100 Clarendon Blvd., Room 307. During the Arlington County Board Chairman's formal closing of the 2008 legislative session, he will present the food donations to AFAC.
