ALIVE! is hosting three free food distributions this week in Alexandria, and the nonprofit is offering shelf stable groceries, produce and eggs for hungry families.
“In response to food insecurity caused by impacts of COVID-19, 1.6 million meals have been distributed throughout Alexandria since Mid-March,” the city said in a release. “To maintain contactless food distribution, residents are encouraged to drive through and remain in their cars. Walk-up customers should maintain six feet of physical distance, wear a face mask, and bring carts or reusable bags to carry food home.”
The distributions will be held on Saturday, October 17 at:
- Cora Kelly School (3600 Commonwealth Avenue) from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m.
- John Adams Elementary School (5651 Rayburn Avenue) from 8:30 to 1030 a.m.
The nonprofit is also currently in need of volunteers.
