WATCH: Together, we're feeding families


Join the Gardeners Fighting Hunger in our community

After a cold start to spring, it's finally warm enough to plant those summer vegetables and herbs. Consider pledging to plant a row with Providence District office and turning a sunny spot in your yard into a victory garden to feed yourself and your neighbors in need. If you have extra seeds, you can always donate those to FFO as well. We love being able to provide our families with local, homegrown produce, and they are thrilled to receive it. 


Big Tow plays driveway concert to raise money for FFO

Flights for Food's headlining band, Big Tow, played for a neighborhood social distancing party and collected donations in their tip jar for Food for Others. They raised more than $900 for families in need of food. Thank you Big Tow & everyone who contributed!


Last Chance to Stuff the Bus!

Today, Fastran buses will be parked at locations throughout Fairfax County from 10am to 3pm to collect food donations for 10 nonprofits including Food for Others! Stuff the Bus is one of our largest annual food drives; we received over 6,000 pounds of food from the first round of donations on Saturday. This year, the collection sites are set up for social distancing. Help us stock our shelves by dropping off donations at one of the Stuff the Bus sites

Please pardon our mess!

We have just switched to new software for online donations, volunteer management, and email.  In the process of merging our records, we may have accidentally ended up with two copies of you or a record that isn't quite right. Please let us know if you find any mistakes in our emails.
