Food4Thought

A Community Partnership to Fight Child Hunger in the Fairfax County Area

Britepaths' Food4Thought program works with volunteers at participating Fairfax County Public Schools to 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.
