Transcript

The mission of Food for Others is to distribute free food to those in need in Northern Virginia; and to use our giving community to do so.

We distribute roughly 2.2 million pounds of food per year. We feed about 1500 families on average per week across all four programs. And we're very proud that we provide a place for people in the community to volunteer their services.

Food for Others is really just a place where neighbors can help neighbors; that's what gets me out of bed every day. It's knowing that I'm helping someone that lives across the street from me or in the next neighborhood. I'm helping them find their next meal or helping them have some dignity in their lives. And, knowing that there are still people out there that are hungry makes me want to do it even more, and do better, and reach more people.
