DISCOVERY Community Partnerships

- Inspiring our Explorers to become agents of change within their own community


Hands-on, meaningful service opportunities for students, parents and staff are available through structured partnerships and collaborations within the Arlington community.

 Discovery AFAC Food Bus


This popular program is back for the 2022-2023 school year!


During a typical school year, Discovery students donate over 2,800 pounds of unwanted, unopened lunch items to AFAC (Arlington Food Assistance Program) through the AFAC School Bus Program.


Explorers can place unopened, uneaten food items from lunch in designated bins (teachers and staff will show students where these are located). At the end of each week, a volunteer will pick up the food from Discovery and deliver it to AFAC. 


Parents can sign up to drive the “food bus” (your car, filled with the AFAC donations).

This is a great family service project! See the link for more information.



If you or someone you know needs food assistance, please reach out to AFAC, 703.845.8486
