Volunteers can feel good knowing they are helping to make sure fresh food is given to families. Volunteers will also help identify urgent food needs for clients.

This is a fantastic job to meet a few neighbors and bring joy.  You can sign up for a regular day or be a fill-in driver.  It’s very easy to do by just picking up a few meals at either Senior Center kitchen and delivering them out to your route. It only takes two hours or so! If you are age 55+, then please call Jan at (571) 292-5307 to be part of the RSVP team. Adults age 54 and under please call Melodee at (703) 792-4583.

The food pantries are low just as kids are getting out of school and families will be more stressed to meet their basic needs.  Please pick up a few extra basics of canned vegs, meats, pasta, sauces, cereal and such for both the SERVE pantry and the ACTS pantry.
