ALIVE! & DASH: Accessing ALIVE! Food Distribution with DASH

June 23, 2023

What is ALIVE!?

ALIVE! is a charitable organization that strives to alleviate poverty and need in the Alexandria community. One of the ways they work to improve the lives of our neighbors in need is by distributing food. To learn more about ALIVE!, including opportunities to donate time or other resources, visit


How can DASH Riders Access ALIVE services?

ALIVE! distributes food and other necessities through Food Hubs at set locations, as well as food distributions at rotating locations and times. ALIVE provides services to Alexandria residents, and visitors may be asked to provide proof that they live in Alexandria. Several of ALIVE’s food distribution locations and Food Hubs are accessible via free and frequent DASH bus service.

Please note that ALIVE! food distribution locations, dates and times are subject to change. For the latest information on these services, visit ALIVE!’s Food Program page.
