Food for Others' mission
is to obtain and distribute free food to the hungry of
Northern Virginia and support food programs of other
community-based organizations. We provide a channel for
people to volunteer their services to help their neighbors
Food for Others, the largest distributor of free food directly to people in need in Northern Virginia, provides the assistance vitally needed by our unemployed and low-income neighbors. We provide a safety net for people who suddenly face unforeseen emergencies such as a family illness or the loss of a job or a spouse.
Even though Northern Virginia is considered one of the wealthiest jurisdictions in the country, we still face a poverty rate of about 5%. This means, based on U.S. Census figures, that more than 90,000 people are living in poverty and 30 percent are children.
Food for Others is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit organization funded in part by the Fairfax and Arlington County governments. We also receive funding from foundations, churches and many generous individuals. A small but dedicated staff and the hard work of over 1,000 volunteers allow us to keep our costs low and maximize our service to those in need.
Financial contributions to Food for Others are tax-deductible. Donors will receive a tax receipt acknowledgement of their donation.
The 10th Annual Food for Others Golf Tournament, presented by First Potomac Realty Trust, was held on May 20 at the Springfield Golf & Country Club. Golfers, sponsors, and spectators alike enjoyed a fun day of spring sunshine at the beautiful course in Springfield, Virginia. The event raised substantial funds to benefit out clients!
