Inscape Publico Crowdfunds Arlington Food Assistance Center RenovationJuly 21, 2014
Founded over 25 years ago, AFAC remains dedicated to its mission of obtaining and distributing groceries—directly and free of charge—to people living in Arlington who cannot afford to purchase enough food to meet their basic needs. Operating under the Choice Model, families select their own groceries to empower shoppers and reduce waste. AFAC serves over 2,000 Arlington County families, about 8,000 people, more than one-third of whom are children. Since July 2013, the organization has seen a 40 percent jump in families served. Inscape Publico’s proposed design of the AFAC facility will accommodate these growing numbers, allowing AFAC to serve more families and improve the experience of individuals receiving food assistance, the AFAC staff, and volunteers.
Inscape Publico has created a concept that will reflect the AFAC’s dedication to providing dignified access to nutritious food while developing a space that caters to the growing demands of the Arlington community. The project team’s plan to refresh the warehouse, distribution center, and offices includes detailed floor plans and renderings to support the renovation and construction process. With a projected construction start date of summer 2015, Inscape Publico is now seeking donations to support their professional design services on this project.
