Join us at the Workhouse Arts Center, 9601 Ox Road, Lorton, VA for our exhibition titled "Home for Dinner."
Home for Dinner is a simple phrase that can signify many things, such as family, laughter, conversation, tradition, favorite foods – just to name a few. For some individuals and families in southeast Fairfax County, “home for dinner” may not have a positive association. Perhaps the family is struggling to afford rent to stay in their home or trying to keep food on the table. The exhibit will consist of art from sixth grade students in local elementary schools.
The Lorton Community Action Center (LCAC) and the Workhouse Arts Center are collaborating on the exhibition to help raise awareness about hunger and homelessness in southeast Fairfax County. Home for Dinner will showcase how community members can make a difference, and it will provide a little friendly competition between elementary schools with a food drive. LCAC, an independent human services non-profit organization, works to prevent homelessness and to ensure that local individuals and families have food for dinner (and all other meals, too!)
Event begins at 11:00AM
