The Family Market is a monthly food distribution event for families whose children attend Carlin Springs Elementary. Food is provided by the Capital Area Food Bank. Items include boxed and canned goods, fresh vegetables and fruit.
From 6pm until 7pm, volunteers help unpack and sort the donated food. At 7pm, each family enters the room and selects food from the various food stations.
In September, we served almost 100 families.
Knowledge of Spanish is helpful but not necessary.
The Arlington Jaycees have been partnering with Carlin Springs Elementary School for 20 years.
