Food Lion Grant Helps WFCM’s Food Clients

Shortly before Thanksgiving, Western Fairfax Christian Ministries (WFCM) received $2,700 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation to help nourish neighbors experiencing hunger. The Feeding the Hungry grant supports WFCM’s efforts to provide fresh, healthy food options in its client-choice food pantries in Chantilly and Centreville.

In these pantries, people in need who’ve been referred to WFCM are able to select their own food items during appointments every 30 days. The value of the food is approximately $60/person in the household and is aimed to last two weeks. With WFCM meeting their food needs, these families can use their incomes for rent and utility bills and focus on improving their financial stability, without the fear of hunger. 

The Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation supports families facing food insecurity across 10 states. Since its inception in 2001, it has awarded more than $18.1 million in grants.
