Did you know that 1 in 4 children in Fairfax and Loudoun counties, two of the wealthiest counties in the nation, struggles with food insecurity? And did you know that many of the families facing food insecurity do not qualify for federal nutrition programs, or visit food banks or other local programs for extra support?
