I am so proud of the work the Providence District has done to help one another during this unprecedented time. Read my piece on Community Food Drives and let me know how we can help you get started! Email us at Providence@fairfaxcounty.gov.
Let’s join forces and fight the battle against hunger together. There is more work to be done to bring food security to our neighbors in need.
Are you an older adult struggling to shop for groceries or pharmacy products due to Covid-19 concerns? We know how difficult it can be to shop during this time.
Fairfax County will now begin offering grocery shopping and pharmacy pick-up service for County residents age 60 and over. To request a pick-up, call 703-324-7948.
Plant a Row for Food for Others
Since schools and most workplaces closed in mid-March, three times more families have been relying on Food for Others to feed their households. You can help these families get fresh, local produce by starting a vegetable or herb garden and donating the produce to Food for Others.
Every food donation helps in the fight against hunger – no matter how small or large. Food for Others accepts donations of food at its Merrifield warehouse (2938 Prosperity Avenue) Monday through Friday, preferably between 2:00 pm- 5:00 pm or during normal operating hours, 9:30 am – 5:00 pm at loading dock 2.
Thank you Miller Heights Neighborhood Association for coming together and donating over 800 lbs. worth of food to Providence District's very own Food for Others. Also, a big shoutout to all the volunteers and staff who made this delivery process so smooth and simple.
This is the first of many food drives we are coordinating with the community!
