Organiser's Description

There are over 1.2 million people in the DMV region who identify as food insecure. In Fairfax County, there are over 80,000 people who are food insecure alone. With this being one of the most affluent areas in the nation, this news is shocking. Due to the lingering effects of COVID and the impact of inflation, food banks and pantries around the region are seeing the demand for services drastically increase. We need your support now more than ever.
