On Tuesday, Nov. 27th, Food for Others, and millions of nonprofits worldwide, will celebrate #GivingTuesday.

#GivingTuesday pushes the global power of social media to create social change, as over 45,000 organizations in more than 70 different countries join together to raise funds for their cause. On Nov. 27, Food for Others is asking you to consider the nearly 90,000 people residents of northern Virginia who are struggling to feed their families without assistance.  Because of your time, dedication, and generous food donations, we have been able to provide some relief to these families for nearly 25 years, and with your financial support, we can continue to greatly impact the lives of our neighbors in need.

We’re counting on you to contribute to the fight against hunger in one of the nation’s wealthiest regions. On Tuesday, Nov. 27th you can make a donation here, and even sign up to volunteer in our warehouse.  For more information on the #GivingTuesday movement, visit givingtuesday.org .
