- Organizations who provide 50 hours of volunteer service, can sell a food/organization sponsored item on Saturday & Sunday.

- Organizations who provide an additional 20 hours of volunteer service, can sell a food/organization sponsored item on Thursday & Friday in addition to Saturday & Sunday. One day opportunities may be available. 

- We work with organizations on the number of days and hours. Please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call John Mosesso at 703-501-5066 to discuss what your organization can do.
