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.


Staff Sweet Potato Cook-Off

Food for Others’ Americorps VISTA, Amy Reagan, initiated a cook-off among staff members, requiring sweet potatoes as an ingredient. The purpose of the cook-off was to provide our clients with samples of the endless amounts of  sweet potato recipes. Nikki Clifford, our Volunteer & Operations Manager’s cajun sweet potatoes won the cook-0ff! And now that clients have been exposed to the different types of sweet potato dishes, they are more encouraged to take what we receive from our suppliers!
