In response to the global public health crisis, Interfaith Works is pleased to announce the opening of The Interfaith Works Hub at Twinbrook, which provides food to families in need in the Twinbrook area.
The Hub is located in the same building as the Interfaith Works Clothing Center at 751 Twinbrook Parkway, Rockville. Interfaith Works wants to thank the Montgomery County Government, Department of Health and Human Services, The COVID-19 Food Security Task Force, and the Latino Health Initiative for grants to support this project, the eighth hub in the county.
The Hub serves as the primary receiving, inventory, and packaging center for delivering items to families and those in need in the Twinbrook area.
Residents looking for information on food assistance resources can now request help by completing a simple online form. Available in seven languages (Amharic, Chinese, English, French, Korean, Spanish, and Vietnamese), the form is reviewed by a trained resource specialist, and residents receive a return phone call within one business day. The specialist will determine a resident’s individual food needs and help them locate food assistance in their community.
Information is available about free food distribution sites, free meal and grocery delivery, SNAP (Food Stamps), local food assistance providers, and other resources in Montgomery County. Residents can also call 311 and ask for the Food Access Call Center to get help with their food needs.
For those interested in volunteering at the Interfaith Works HUB at Twinbrook please refer to the following information. Food distribution will happen most Fridays, with the exception of weeks with Holidays. Please view our SignUpGenius for available times to volunteer. Distribution will be from 11-1. Volunteers will be outside for distribution so please dress according to the weather. Distribution jobs will be assigned the morning of distribution which may include filling bags of food, directing traffic, or loading up cars with boxes/bags of food. All volunteers are required to adhere to COVID-19 protocols which include wearing a mask and gloves.
The HUB will also need 3 volunteers Wednesday & Thursday mornings to help organize produce bags. If you're interested, please use SignUpGenius to sign up for these time slots.
