About Homeless Bagged Meal Program (HBMP)


In 1988, two women living in Arlington County began preparing bagged meals from their homes and serving them to homeless people one night a week. This bagged meal program gradually grew throughout the years to become Arlington Street People’s Assistance Network, which was formally incorporated as a non-profit organization in 1992. Today, over 1,000 volunteers from faith groups, schools, businesses and the community prepare and serve up to 80 meals daily at two Arlington sites through the Homeless Bagged Meal Program (HBMP). The outdoor locations are along the Ballston-Rosslyn corridor.
