There are now more than 1,200 kids receiving weekly food support
at 21 area middle and high schools!
Food For Neighbors is a non-profit organization (located in Herndon, VA) helping to
feed students who struggle with hunger after school, on weekends, and during school holidays. We provide local middle and high schools with individual meals and snack items to distribute
during these times when students might otherwise go hungry. We connect with their social workers and help the schools set up a weekend snack program or food pantry to distribute the food.
We provide the platform for schools to engage their local community to donate food and gather volunteers that help with picking up donations, sorting the food and
distributing to schools in their area. This is done through our Red Bag Program where we distribute Red Bags with a list of items needed and then collect the bags bimonthly on a
Saturday. We also provide support and marketing materials for schools to engage their community to recieve in-kind donations from individuals, area businesses,
stores and local faith organizations.
Our program began in Herndon, VA, where the local community quickly responded to the need for food at our middle and high schools. Now our students are benefitting
weekly from the consistent and reliable source of donated food. FFN has expanded into the Springfield, VA area, the Falls Church area, neighboring schools in Loudoun County and most recently the Fort
Hunt, VA area where we are already supporting five schools.
We are excited to expand into other schools in Fairfax and Loudoun Counties! Our goal is to end hunger for middle and high school students who live with
