Our Food Assistance Programs utilize grocery store gift cards as well as non-perishable food and supplies for our pantry to help feed Fairfax County area families in crisis.
Our Food Bridge Supporting Organizations help us deliver food assistance to 30 families every two weeks. Families in this program are typically working with our mentors and staff to budget, save, improve their career prospects, and become self-sufficient. Our Supporting Organizations sign up on our delivery calendar 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 the pandemic, 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.
