Stuff the BusHelp us Feed Fairfax Families!
 

As the holiday decorations come down and the cold winter months settle in, many people continue to go hungry in our community. Help us support our local nonprofit food pantries as they work to provide assistance for individuals and families in need throughout our community.
 

The Need for Food is Great!

  • 8 percent of Fairfax County Public Schools students reported going hungry in the past month (some of the time, most of the time, or always) due to lack of food in the home. (2018 Youth Survey Results, page 135)
  • 30 percent of Fairfax County Public Schools students receive free or reduced price lunches.

  • More than 75,000 Fairfax County residents live below the federal poverty level
