Join fellow alumni and friends in helping to sort non-perishable food items donated to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) in response to the Stamp Out Hunger food drive.

Each year, the National Association of Letter Carriers dedicates the 2nd Saturday of every May to serving communities nationwide by collecting food to be delivered to local hunger organizations. In Arlington County, all food collected by letter carriers will go to AFAC.

We will be sorting more than 30,000 pounds of food being brought to the AFAC Warehouse. This will be fast-paced and physically demanding work, as we unload and sort bins of food from vans and trucks that will continue to arrive throughout the day. Please be sure to wear closed-toed shoes. And, of course, wear Stanford gear! 

If there is interest within the group, we will walk over to Shirlington to celebrate and socialize afterwards.
