Every day up to 90,000 people go hungry across Northern Virginia, one of the nation’s wealthiest regions. We are changing that.

Help us change that by giving them food.

Food for Others Community Garden Groundbreaking

Fairfax, VA – June 6th, 2017 – Food for Others, like so many food pantries across America, is focusing on receiving healthier donations for their clients. The organization would like to provide healthier options that people already enjoy. To gauge preferences, Food for Others surveyed clients on their fruits and vegetables of choice. After reviewing the survey results, they realized the majority of produce requested could be grown in a community garden.

On Thursday, June 22nd, at Peace Lutheran Church in Alexandria, Food for Others planted their first garden where they will be growing the produce requested by clients. All produce grown in this garden will go to families in need in Northern Virginia. This exciting project would not have been possible without the support of Meadows Farms, Garden Club of Fairfax, and Friends of Occoquan.

Free Summer Meals for Kids Program

Approximately 20 percent of Fairfax County students receive free and reduced price meals during the school year. When the school year ends, so does the opportunity for consistent, nutritious meals for many of these students. The Free Summer Meals for Kids Program fills that need by providing nutritious meals to children ages 5 to 18 during the summer – because hunger doesn’t take a summer vacation. Fairfax County Public Schools is barbecuing daily at seventeen locations across the county from June 26th through August 25th, 2017. For more information, click here.
