All In for Aidan: Community Food Drive

Our All In For Aidan: Community Celebration Series picks back up this month with our Community Food Drive! From February 8 until February 22, we will be collecting non-perishable food items for the Capital Area Food Bank. All members of the Aidan community are encouraged to participate! Donations may be brought directly to the school and dropped off in one of our collection boxes. 

The Capital Area Food Bank (CAFB) provides millions of meals to various communities throughout the DC-metro area through direct distribution and partnership with various non-profits. Food insecurity and hunger are particularly acute in these uncertain times, and we can all do our part to support our neighbors in need!
