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

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

Va. doctor writes prescriptions for food to help hungry families

Dr. Fred Garner of Burke Pediatrics calls Food for Others the “food pharmacy.” Over the summer of 2017, he partnered with us on an initiative called Rx for Food, because hunger takes no days off. Patients received prescriptions of food and came to Food for Others for assistance. Take a look at the impact we are collectively making on the Fairfax community. Thank you WUSA channel 9 for shedding light on food insecurity and what we are doing to combat this issue.
