A Giving Tradition

Each holiday season, DI holds a food drive to collect donations to support local families in need. Food for Others collects these donations and others to make up all the fixings for Thanksgiving meals. These items are put together in bags that will provide much of the holiday meal for families in the Northern Virginia area.

Food for Others

Food for Others is the largest distributor of free food directly to people in need in Northern Virginia, providing assistance vitally needed by unemployed and low-income citizens. Food for Others provides a safety net for people who suddenly face unforeseen emergencies such as a family illness or the loss of a job or a spouse.

Even though Northern Virginia is considered one of the wealthiest jurisdictions in the country, it still has a poverty rate of about 5%. Based on U.S. Census figures, more than 90,000 people are living in poverty in the area, with 30% percent being children.

Food for Others is a 501(c)(3) tax exempt nonprofit organization funded in part by the Fairfax and Arlington County governments. Food for Others also receives funding from foundations, churches and generous individuals. A small but dedicated staff and the hard work of more than 1,000 volunteers allows them to keep costs low and maximize service to those in need.
