Feed Our Families

As the pandemic continued to impact every aspect of our daily lives, food insecurity became the most urgent need for many families along Columbia Pike. That’s why we partnered with our Columbia Pike Farmers Market vendors to assemble weekly produce boxes for our families in need.

Additional Food Assistance Programs

Arlington County maintains a list of various COVID-19 food assistance resources that are available throughout the County.

Arlington Food Assistance Center

Arlington Public Schools

About the Program

In discussions with our numerous partner organizations across Arlington County, it became clear that access to fresh food was becoming more difficult for Columbia Pike residents. While there are many amazing organizations and efforts underway to address this need, there were still significant barriers to access, including traveling to certain food distribution centers.

That’s why the Columbia Pike Partnership decided to work with our Columbia Pike Farmers Market vendors, partners, local pantries, and residential complexes to provide boxes of produce, fresh from the farm, directly to families in need on Columbia Pike.

Participating Vendors and Distribution Sites

Produce purchased from Penn Farm and Westmoreland Produce was distributed at Harvey Hall, Gilliam Place, and Our Lady Queen of Peace food pantry.

Thank You

Without your support, this program would not have been possible. Thank you to everyone who donated and helped us raise nearly $100,000 to feed our families in need on Columbia Pike!
