SUPPORT FOR OUR FAMILIES
If you need support here are some resources for you.
Fairfax County Public Schools is providing meals for students and their families.
Providence Elementary School is one of the sites for both breakfast and lunch. Meals are served between 9:00-1:00 (you can get both at the same time) Monday - Friday as curbside pickup. Meals are free for students and $2 for adults. The City of Fairfax CUE bus will also be providing free rides to and from Providence ES. Please see here for stops and schedules.
In addition, FCPS Bus Route 4 will also be providing meals at selected stops. Please see the FCPS website for the specific times and stops.
Fairfax County Government has an interactive map to find resources throughout the county for support.
We have heard from the Fairfax Presbyterian Church on Main Street that has two "Little Free Pantries" for those in need to take non-perishable food items and those who would like to help can donate items. All are outside the church.
Food for Others is also allowing people in need to come to their warehouse.
For those of you asking how to help our students, we know there are many worthy causes. To support city schools directly, a wonderful partner is A Place to Stand. A Place to Stand is the backbone behind food pantries at many of our schools. You can donate funds directly on their website.
We are asking our community to stay informed of the most recent updates from a local government agency. The City of Fairfax works with Fairfax County. Here are some links to check regularly.
