This year, due to a large grant and commitment to end childhood hunger from the Giant Our Family Foundation, the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank (FAFB) is partnering with the school system to provide Food-4-Families.
The Food-4-Families program is a way to help not only the child but the entire family with supplemental food. A food pantry is established on-site at participating schools with food and storage items provided by the FAFB. As the schools determine a family in need, the school officials can help the family select items from the Food-4-Families pantry to allow them to prepare healthy family meals for 2-3 days until the family can get to a community pantry.
Please join us for the Food-4-Families Stock the School Pantry Food Drive on Saturday, September 20, 2014 from 10:00 – 3:00 at the Giant Food 5650 Plank Rd, Fredericksburg, VA 22407.
