First Community-wide Food Drive

This Summer, VolALX will host its first community-wide food drive across the City of Alexandria to benefit the food center, ALIVE! Community Food drives are an important part of their ability to keep costs down and serve more people in need. Overall, food donations are down, but the number of families has increased 10 times over the past three years, and the food center’s inventory is very low in the summer. The reasons for a low inventory include COVID-19 results, schools are out, and people are on vacation. This food drive goes from July 4-28 and will help to increase inventory and reduce costs for purchased food.

ONLY donate these items: Canned meat, fish, fruit, beans, and vegetables. Oil in plastic bottles.

Our goal is to collect 30,000 pounds of food for 2,000 families with YOUR HELP!
