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.
Join us at historic Old Town Hall for an evening of local wine, whiskey & beer tastings. Sample the best food and drinks of the region while raising money to feed the hungry. Dance to live music and take home some great items from the silent auction. All proceeds will help Food for Others feed needy kids and families in Northern Virginia.
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.

In 2019, twenty percent of the food that Food for Others received to distribute to our neighbors in need came from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The USDA currently provides fresh and nutritious food to the country’s food banks thanks to the four-year Farm Bill signed by the President in 2018 that covers the years 2019-2023. What
