Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) delivers groceries weekly to two of APAH’s Arlington rental communities, allowing for easier access to groceries for those residents who are unable to get to AFAC’s distribution center. The volunteer team assists with setting up the distribution area, tabling the groceries as they are delivered by AFAC, hosting the distribution, and breaking down and cleaning up after distribution ends. This work calls for excellent customer-service skills, patience, and comfort working with a diverse population. Teams for these APAH-AFAC distributions are pretty set but in times that a volunteer is no longer able to assist on a long-term basis, positions open up for new volunteers.

Update: Due to the rising case numbers of COVID-19, APAH staff and voluteers will pre-bag groceries for distributions until further notice.
