Welcome to the Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC), a compassionate initiative by Behind the Veil Christian Ministries. Our mission is to provide essential food and support to individuals and families in need within the Arlington community. With a deep commitment to local outreach and a focus on faith-based service, we strive to make a positive impact and alleviate hunger for those facing challenging circumstances.

Our Commitment to the Arlington Community

At Arlington Food Assistance Center, we firmly believe that no one should go hungry. We recognize that hunger knows no boundaries and affects individuals from all walks of life. Our dedicated team of volunteers and staff work tirelessly to ensure that our neighbors in need have access to nutritious food, as well as the resources and support necessary to overcome the challenges they face.

Programs and Services

We offer a range of programs and services to address the diverse needs of the Arlington community:

  • Emergency Food Distribution: Through our well-established food pantry network, we provide immediate assistance to individuals and families experiencing food insecurity. Our goal is to ensure that no one has to worry about where their next meal will come from.
  • Community Outreach: We actively engage with the community through various outreach initiatives, including educational workshops, nutritional guidance, and referrals to other essential support services. Our goal is to empower individuals and families to improve their overall well-being.
  • Children's Nutrition Programs: We recognize the critical importance of nutrition for children's development. Our programs focus on providing healthy meals and snacks to children, both through our partnerships with schools and community organizations.
  • Senior Support: We acknowledge and honor the invaluable contributions of our senior community members. Our senior support programs aim to address their specific needs through nutritious food options, socialization opportunities, and other tailored support services.
  • Job Skills Training: We strive to empower individuals by offering job skills training programs that enhance their employability. By equipping individuals with marketable skills, we aim to break the cycle of poverty and create pathways to self-sufficiency.
