A Community Partnership to Fight Child Hunger in the Fairfax County Area
Britepaths' Food4Thought program works with staff and volunteers at participating Fairfax County Public Schools to help them provide healthy meals, drinks and snacks over the weekend to children who receive free or reduced-price meals during school days. For many of these children, school meals might be the only ones they receive.
Educators and child health experts know that when children have access to regular healthy meals, they are healthier, perform better in school and have fewer behavioral issues. The effects of persistent hunger can follow them for the rest of their lives. In one of the wealthiest counties in the United States, it is imperative that we work together as a community to ensure that our children are able to eat regular healthy meals.
Your contribution will be passed along to the schools (minus a minimal administrative fee). If you would like your donation to go to a specific school, type the school's name in the Donor Comments box (school list) Undesignated donations will go where they're most needed.
