Emergency Referral Guidelines
A client can have a maximum of 6 referrals in a calendar year.
A client may only have 1 referral per calendar week.
One referral equals one visit. An additional allotment of food would require an additional referral.
Once we receive the referral, the client has up to 2 weeks to come in and retrieve the food from our office at 2938 Prosperity Ave, Fairfax, VA 22031.
The client is required to bring in a form of ID showing where they live. It can be a driver’s license or a piece of mail with their name and address on it. For example, a bill, letter from their child’s school, etc. not the Bed, Bath & Beyond coupon. A passport can be used as the picture ID.
Referrals must come from an organizationally based email. We can not accept referrals from that come from yahoo, Gmail, etc.
Please know the referral form must be in our system before the client comes in to pick up their food. The client cannot carry in the form unless it is a prescription from a doctor. Also, there is no “approval” needed; as soon as the referral is submitted, the client can come in.
