A Community Partnership to Fight Child Hunger in the Fairfax County Area
COVID-19: Our partner schools are still helping students in need at their schools, and your donation will still make a big difference!
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.

Gifts of stocks, bonds, and other securities - You can support our work without even opening your wallet! A gift of your appreciated stock will bring security and promise to the financial well-being of a struggling family, while offering you a tax advantage. Making a gift of stocks, bonds, or mutual funds is simple and easy, and you receive a two-part benefit of receiving an immediate tax deduction and avoiding capital gains tax. The amount of your gift will be determined by the value on the day it is transferred into Britepaths’ account. Click here for a Stock Donation Form.
