Food for Others’ warehouse at 2938 Prosperity Avenue, Fairfax, VA 22031 is open for distributions of food, Monday through Friday from 9:30am until 5:00pm.
Northern Virginia Residents may receive food from us at the warehouse in two different ways:
1. Families who meet U.S. Government income guidelines may be eligible to receive USDA food supplements. Northern Virginia residents may walk into the warehouse office and apply for this monthly program. The Emergency Food Assistance Program (TEFAP) is a supplemental assistance program for low-income households and is provided by the United State Department of Agriculture. Clients may shop in the “choice” area, choosing enough food to meet their families’ needs for three to five days.
- If you are a Northern Virginia resident, you may walk in and apply. Bring a photo ID. If the ID does not have your current address on it, please also bring in a lease or a piece of mail addressed to you.
2. Free emergency food distributions are made from our warehouse and are given to people who are referred to us by social service providers throughout the area including social workers, clergy, hospitals, and schools. The amount can provide nutrition for a family for three-to-five days until other forms of assistance become available.
