ABOUT US

ForK was founded in Manassas, Virginia to help local schools reach children without enough to eat on the weekend.  Help more children and families by visiting the "Get Involved" tab, above.

 

ForK is dedicated to helping families fill the weekend gap when in-school meals are not available by providing healthy, nourishing foods on a weekly basis. We work closely with local schools to reach the children and families in greatest need. Targeted schools are either not currently serviced by other weekend food organizations, overlooked because of the overall socio-economic status of the area around the school, or in need of greater assistance.

 

We deliver food items to participating schools and each Friday teachers or counselors discretely place that food in the childrens' backpacks. Every effort is made to ensure that the program is operated in a manner that promotes respect for the children and families served.

 

We have a Registered Dietitian on staff who consults on the types of food offered through the program.  Currently,  food items include:

 

  • Fruit

  • Granola Bars

  • Oatmeal

  • Tomato Soup

  • Chicken Noodle Soup

  • Chicken and Rice Soup

  • Beef Vegetable Soup

  • Spaghetti & Meatballs

  • Macaroni & Cheese

  • Tuna

  • Chicken

  • Corn

  • Green Beans

  • Peas

  • Raisins

  • Popcorn

  • Pretzels

 

Together, we can ensure that our community

no longer tolerates child hunger.
