Tysons Corner Center Co-Hosting Food Drive

Visitors to Tysons Corner Center can drop off canned food and snacks to help people facing food insecurity.

The mall teamed up with radio station WGTS 91.9 and the Capital Area Food Bank on a food drive.

The Capital Area Food Bank is looking for the following items:

  • canned or dry beans
  • canned vegetables (low sodium, no salt added)
  • peanut butter
  • hot and cold cereal
  • grains: brown and white rice, pasta, macaroni and cheese
  • canned tuna, salmon or chicken
  • 100% juice (all sizes)
  • canned fruits
  • healthy snacks like raisins and granola bars

Working with more than 450 nonprofit partners, the Capital Area Food Bank provides more than 30 million meals yearly, according to its website.

For communities across the U.S., the coronavirus pandemic has made it harder to access food and resources. A study earlier this year by Feeding America predicts that 17 million more people — including 7 million kids — will face food insecurity this year than in pre-pandemic times.

People will have until Sunday, Aug. 30, to drop off donations at either the concierge desk on the second level near Starbucks or at Bloomingdale’s.
