ABOUT FOOD FOR OTHERS

Food for Others is an important part of Northern Virginia’s safety net for those needing food when an emergency strikes, and for the growing number of working poor who are unable to make ends meet and need to supplement their inadequate food supplies. Local merchants, the USDA, food drives, and crop harvests provide the food; volunteers and staff provide the hands; and charitable contributions and fundraising events provide the funds.

ABOUT MITZVAH MAVENS

Mitzvah Mavens is a program of The Jewish Federation of Greater Washington’s Women’s Philanthropy. As part of Federation’s Doing Good social action initiative, Mitzvah Mavens invites women of all ages with a passion for tikkun olam (repairing the world) to take part in year-round service projects with partner agencies and local organizations committed to making a positive difference for our community by helping those in need.
