Under normal circumstances, our Food Assistance Programs utilize donations of grocery store gift cards as well as non-perishable food and supplies for our pantry. During COVID-19, we are using donated funds and grants to mail grocery store gift cards to our clients. We are grateful to our COVID-19 Grantors for helping us offer emergency food assistance to many more families to help them get through this especially difficult time.
Our Food Bridge Supporting Organizations make it possible to deliver our services to 30 families every two weeks, and making it possible to continue this assistance during COVID-19. These faith communities, businesses and community groups sign up for a Sunday or two during the year. Normally, they collect and deliver either grocery gift cards or non-perishable food items and supplies to our Food Bridge clients. During COVID-19, they are providing funds to Britepaths to mail grocery store gift cards or mailing gift cards themselves. We have an ongoing need for Food Bridge Supporting Organizations and welcome new organizations to get involved.
Britepaths is a founding member of the Fairfax Food Council, and we support community initiatives to make healthy food available to all.
