Note: Please check the expiration date of the items you wish to donate. Also, since we have no refrigeration available to us, we ask that you donate non-perishable food only.

Food Drives 

Food drives are a great opportunity for a short-term commitment and a great serving opportunity for small groups. If you’re planning on having a food drive, please contact us first, so we can assist you with brochure materials, as well as give you a list of requested items. Contact us under 703/853-4920
