HELPING HUNGRY KIDS
of Northern Virginia
Hundreds of children in Northern Virginia need food every year. Help us provide them enough to eat.
Update: April, 2021
Helping Hungry Kids (HHK) is growing into our new space! This has allowed us to include more volunteers, with the hope of packing and distributing more bags in the near future.
The following organizations have been vital to our success:
Northwest Federal Credit Union generously donated space to HHK so we can focus on feeding students in need.
The Northwest Federal Credit Union Foundation conducts food drives.
Giant Food at Fox Mill collects money from customers to buy HHK items.
Vale Club packs bags.
Social4Good donated 700 bags with Valentines.
Boy Scout Troop 1577 conducts food drives and packs bags.
We are so thankful to our generous supporters, as we could not be doing this without you! If you would like to help, please consider the following:
Connie Laurent-Roy and Sandy Amato had a vision that began in a basement in Reston, Virginia in 2009. They knew not every child in Fairfax county had enough food on weekends and during school breaks. So they created Helping Hungry Kids (HHK) of Northern Virginia to serve the community.
For more than 10 years, HHK has provided packs to local elementary school children who lack enough food. Each pack costs about $6 and contains enough food for 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners, and 2-3 snacks. Pantry items include fruit cups, applesauce, pudding, cereal, soup, mac n' cheese, and milk.
Our goal is to provide packs to local elementary school children who lack enough food on weekends and during breaks.
We distribute more than 13,000 food packs each school year to children at area elementary schools including:
