Where, When & How


We welcome everyone to our distributions at the rear of Church of the Ascension, located at 630 Silver Spring Ave. No identification is required to receive a box of shelf-stable food, produce, or other essential items. Simply drive up and join the line of cars adjacent to the rear entrance of the church. Line forms no earlier than 7 am. For driving directions, please visit our Driving Directions page.

If you’re new to our distributions and plan to arrive on foot, please email at least 24 hours in advance so we can reserve a box for you. We recommend bringing a cart to assist you in transporting the distributed items. Our full boxes typically weigh between 15 and 30 lbs.

Stay updated with important announcements about special extra distributions or cancellations by visiting our News page. If you’d like to receive text notifications about our distributions, simply text the code @takomaf to the number 81010. You will then need to click on the message from Bartels.
