This year, Fairfax County Public Library is helping the community in a major way. The library has committed to waive $1 fines owed during the month of November, for each non–perishable food item donated. (max. $15 in fines). All items will be donated to Food for Others.
We made the list! The Catalogue for Philanthropy named Food for Others #OneOfTheBest
Food for Others was accepted into Catalogue for Philanthropy’s 2018-2019 class of “best” nonprofits in the Greater Washington Area. We are extremely proud of such an accomplishment. Thank you to staff, volunteers, donors, and all who make it possible to do the work that we do!
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.
