We would like to recognize Wegmans Food Markets Fairfax for donating almost $50,000 to Food For Others. This was achieved through the store’s #CareAboutHungerCampaign. Helping feed the hungry in the community is #Wegmans greatest #giving priority, and we want to thank them for collaborating with local #foodbanks and #foodpantries to achieve such a goal. Thank you for organizing such a fantastic campaign!
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.
