Alexandria, VA – Due to an urgent need for food this summer, Volunteer Alexandria is hosting its first community-wide food drive to benefit ALIVE! Our goal is to collect 30,000 pounds of food for 2,000 area families. Your support is needed!

While food donations are down, the number of families in need has increased ten times over the past three years. Currently, the shelves at ALIVE’s food pantry are becoming alarmingly bare.

Please ONLY donate one or more of these items:

  • Canned meat and fish
  • Canned fruits and vegetables
  • Canned beans
  • Oil in plastic bottles

Drop Off Places: Barrett Library | Beatley Library | Burke Library | City of Alexandria/City Hall | DCHS | Department of Beer and Wine | Duncan Library | Fairlington Presbyterian Church | Fitness Together | Old Town North Community Partners | the goodhart group | Venue Condominium | YMCA Alexandria | Zweet Sport

Visit VolunteerAlexandria.org/food for a complete list of drop off places.
