Description

If you are part of a group or organization looking for a meaningful way to volunteer in our community, please consider running a grocery store gift card drive to help our Food Bridge families. In addition to the 60 Fairfax County area families who are on our four-month food assistance program, more than 200 families are referred to us each year who need emergency food assistance to help them feed their children while they are working through a temporary financial crisis.


The gift cards you collect will help us fill gaps in our food delivery calendar for our families when no Supporting Organization is available to help, and they will help families in crisis purchase milk and fresh foods for their kids to supplement the pantry supplies we provide when they're referred for emergency assistance.


Grocery store gift cards allow our clients to meet the specific dietary needs of their family, which may include managing food allergies. The cards also allow parents to make good nutritional choices for their children that include fruits, vegetables and dairy items we can't store in our pantry or easily deliver. The gift cards also allow our clients to practice newly acquired financial management skills they receive through our Financial Literacy Program, by helping them get the most out of every dollar they spend for food.
