Food-4-Families School Pantry is the newest program of the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank designed to alleviate childhood hunger through on-site pantries at area schools. Giant Food at Celebrate Virginia helped to host a kick off the food drive with a donation of $1,000 worth of food for the pantry program. Giant Food is committed to ending childhood hunger. This food drive will provide 1,245 pounds of food to the participating schools enrolled in the Food-4-Families School Pantry Program to stock their shelves so the schools can select the items that will best meet the needs of families experiencing food insecurity or crisis. Thank you Giant Food and the community for helping our kids!
