Our Mission

To rebuild and strengthen communities by fighting hunger one meal at a time.

Our Vision

Hunger robs children of a chance to learn, undermines health, and makes obtaining and retaining good employment even more difficult. Each year, over 540,000 DC, MD, and VA residents receive access to healthy food. 

We visualize citizens throughout Virginia uniting together to facilitate clothing drives to assist women and men transitioning back into the workforce, distributing hygiene bags and meals-to-go  to the hungry, collecting coats and blankets to distribute to the unsheltered and sheltered underserved to keep warm in the winter, and serving warm "family-like" meals to our adopted local housing shelter.

We are always looking for volunteers to assist with meal preparations, meal deliveries, drives, and production of hygiene bags.

Our Core Values

We strive to emulate our core values in all that we do: Outreach, Unity, Compassion, and Selfless-Service
