Heritage Fellowship Church is continuing our partnership with the Fairfax County Food Council, the Capital Area Food Bank, and the United States Department of Agriculture's Farmers to Families Food Distribution Program.
We will distribute food boxes to families, every Saturday morning, from February through April 2021.
We thank those of you who came out to help us on last Saturday. Because of your assistance we were able to complete the distribution of all of the food boxes to those in our community who are struggling with food insecurity.
Prior to the pandemic, while Fairfax County has traditionally had a low food-insecurity rate compared to other counties in the nation, it had the highest number of food insecure in Virginia with approximately 58,000 residents food insecure with over 23,000 children suffering from food insecurity. Since the pandemic, it is estimated that the number of residents who are food insecure has doubled. - Fairfax Food Council
The need continues to be great.
If you have not had an opportunity to participate, we ask that you join us every Saturday morning, from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. through April 24th, to assist us with off-loading the boxes and preparing them for distribution. This is also a wonderful opportunity for students to acquire community service hours. Masks are required and there will be temperature checks.
Please prayerfully consider coming out and help. We would love to see you!
