Britepaths’ Emergency Pantry Needs Community Support

Britepaths’ Emergency Pantry Needs Community Support

Since hunger in Fairfax County never takes a vacation, Fairfax-based nonprofit Britepaths works hard, all year ’round, to feed local individuals and families in need. But it can’t do it alone; it needs the community’s help to stock its Emergency Pantry. 

Currently, the most-needed food items are: Applesauce cups/fruit cups (unsweetened/in own juice); dried beans, cooking oil, jam and jelly, pancake mix and syrup, pasta sauce, peanut butter, oatmeal (unflavored, in canisters) and rice. Greatly needed, as well, are shampoo and adult-sized toothbrushes, plus reusable grocery bags to distribute the food.

Britepaths is at 3959 Pender Drive, No. 200, in Fairfax, and accepts donations on Mondays and Wednesdays, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. To arrange to make a drop-off, please contact Britepaths in advance at 703-273-8829 or
