SUPPORTING FOOD FOR OTHERS’ FOOD DRIVE

02 NOVEMBER 2016

This holiday season, Artemis Consulting is supporting Food for Others by organizing a holiday food drive. Having had worked with the organization in the past, several on the team found it to be a very worthy cause.   Food for Others is Northern Virginia’s primary safety net for food when an emergency strikes, and for the growing number of working poor who are unable to make ends meet and need to supplement their inadequate food supplies. Food for Others is a non-profit 501(c)(3) food bank and food rescue operation, working to help those in Northern Virginia who are food insecure. Their clients range from new immigrants, to the working poor, to professionals who have lost their jobs.

The Thanksgiving food drive’s purpose is to provide entire holiday meals to those in the community who would otherwise go without during this time of year. To assemble complete meals, Artemis Consulting is collecting monetary and food donations, including chickens, turkeys, canned goods and fresh vegetables. This drive is also serving as a team building activity with our employees  boxing up non-perishable meals as items are being brought to the office.  This year our staff had an additional incentive as the management team matched the dollars raised by the staff.  With the contributions of food items and additionally purchased food items using monetary donations, the Artemis team is aiming to put together twenty-five full meals that will be distributed by the Food for Others organization in Fairfax County.

If you are able to make a contribution, please drop off food items at Food for Others’ distribution center at 2938 Prosperity Ave. Fairfax, VA.
