Thousands of students in Fairfax County rely on their school-provided meals and do not get enough to eat on the weekends. Food for Others' Power Pack Program provides hungry students in Fairfax County schools with packs of meals to eat on Saturday and Sunday while they do not have access to their school meals. Although school is online right now, Food for Others is still providing Power Packs to students facing hunger.
With kids at home all day, parents need a lot more food than usual to keep their children well-fed and focused on school. To help supplement the amount of food parents can give to their kids while they are online learning, Food for Others is working with 20 Fairfax County schools to get Power Packs to kids in need. Each pack contains 6 meals as well as 2 snacks and 2 drinks. All the items in the packs are easy for kids to prepare themselves. FFO’s volunteer drivers deliver Power Packs to FCPS personnel and each school has its own method of delivering the food to students in need.
