What We Do
Providing food for the hungry has always been a core part of ACTS mission to prevent and alleviate human suffering. ACTS founders were the first to establish a food bank in Prince William County over 50 years ago. We are continuing that work now with Prince William Food Rescue (PWFR), the first program of its kind in the region. By harnessing the power of volunteers and new technology, we are linking food that would be wasted directly with organizations that can quickly get it to those in need.
We partner with food retailers, nonprofit organizations, and food rescue heroes to bring healthy food directly to those experiencing food insecurity. We are committed to helping break the link between poverty and poor health by bringing healthy options to the table for families in need.
Each day, ACTS PWFR will pick up fresh produce and cooked food from farms, wholesalers, grocery stores, restaurants, caterers, and other food outlets, to make scheduled and on-demand deliveries to non-profit community partners.
