arlington food assistance center
Arlington Food Assistance Center (AFAC) is a community-based nonprofit that provides supplemental groceries to Arlingtonians in need, and distributes groceries to over 2,000 families every week. Inscape Publico's design promotes AFAC's mission of providing dignified access to nutritious foods through a Choice Model of food distribution. Families and individuals coming to AFAC will navigate the center much as they would a small grocery store, choosing from fresh fruits and vegetables, meats, baked and dairy goods, and various staples. Inscape Publico is designing a full renovation of the building that AFAC owns and out of which they currently operate, which will in effect provide them a new facility allowing them to provide a much improved experience for the people they serve as well as their volunteers and employees, and to increase their capacity, thereby serving more people in need.
