SEPTEMBER 9TH 8AM AT TYSONS CORNER CENTER
For the past 28 years, Food for Others has established itself as an essential part of Northern Virginia’s safety net. In our first year of operation, we served about 105 families per month. All these years later, we’re serving roughly 3,000 families per week and 3,500 students each week via our Power Pack Program.
100% of net proceeds from the race will support the Food for Others mission

HOW TO GET INVOLVED
Power Pack Program
Food for Others Power Pack Program provides weekend meal packs for students experiencing food insecurity. The program currently serve 41 schools and roughly 3,500 students each week.
Warehouse Food Distribution
We operate two programs out of our warehouse, Emergency Referral and USDA. Emergency Food operations at our warehouse provide 3-5 days’ worth of non-perishables as well as milk, eggs, and other fresh items to people referred by various social service providers.
As of January 2023, we have opened our new and improved My Market. Now, families who visit our warehouse can select their own items in a client choice pantry and access wrap around services to help them work towards greater food security.
Food for Others operates 11 neighborhood sites. Families can receive supplementary food from them.
Food for Others operates 9 mobile sites. At a mobile site, families can pick up 3-5 days worth of food with an emergency referral from a social worker.
Food for Others currently works with 22 community partners. These partners distribute food to more localized communities, and by distributing food to them, we expand the number of families experiencing food insecurity who we reach. Some of them run smaller food pantries or distribute food through their own sites or programming.
