More than 70,000 people live in poverty in Fairfax County, one of the Nation’s wealthiest regions.

Food for Others distributes food to more than 1,800 local families in need each week.

We are able to provide food with help from the community.



We’re raising money for a Mobile Food Pantry!

We are counting on you to help us reach more families in need of food. We have plans to take our emergency food program on the road, bringing a truck fully stocked with groceries to families who cannot get to our warehouse. Will you make a donation to help us launch our mobile food program?  It would mean so much to us and the people we serve.
