New Food Distribution Location!

Starting Wednesday, November 18th,
we will be moving our Food Distribution to the
Aspen Chapel (just right off the roundabout).
77 Meadowood, off Castle Creek Rd.

Every family is welcome to come through AFC’s food distribution each Wednesday.
Our food consists of store cupboard staples and other fresh items, and is a great way to stretch your weekly food budget.
If you or a family member is ill or in quarantine and can not make the distribution, please contact our office and we will deliver!
If your family's financial circumstances have changed this year because of COVID, please consider applying for Free or Reduced school lunch. If you qualify, and even if your child prefers not to eat school lunch, certain school fees for supplies or activities, will also be waived.

We encourage all families who may be having a difficult financial time because of COVID, to think about some of the ways you can make smart decisions and get extra help.
