Special Dee-livery: Albie Goes Shopping to Help Feds During Shutdown

January 23, 2019

By Erin Thibeau

Albie Dee went on a Safeway shopping spree Wednesday to load up on shelf-stable items for the Capital Area Food Bank.

Every Saturday during the partial federal government shutdown, CAFB is holding free pop-markets around the DMV for furloughed workers. With a valid government or federal contractor ID, up to 500 people at each of the eight locations can receive produce and groceries.

Watch Albie pick out the best foods for donations in the video above, and check out a shopping list here.

If you're a government worker affected by the shutdown, stop by the next Saturday pop-up market near you.
