Impacted by the government shutdown?
In response to the government shutdown, SHARE will open its
doors at noon on Monday, January 28, to sell groceries, a la carte, to all who want to come and buy good fresh food – as much as you’d like – at deep discounts. This is an opportunity for government employees and others affected by the shutdown to buy fresh fruits & vegetables, meats and staple items. No application or identification needed.
Also, organizations that want to provide SHARE packages to their community should call Director Jaynee Acevedo at 301-864-3115 or email her at Jaynee.Acevedo@cc-dc.org. We are ready to help organizations serve large and small families alike. Food will be available, by appointment, for bulk pick up.
At SHARE, donor dollars help us provide healthy groceries at about half the cost of what grocery stores charge. To make a donation, contact Jaynee Acevedo. For more information, please call SHARE at 301-864-3115.
