FCS has been honored with a Distinguished Partner recognition from Fairfax County Department of Neighborhood and Community Services. Here is the text of the award, which was presented at a luncheon at James Lee Center on May 24th:
Falls Church Community Service Council identified a need for regular supportive food assistance to address food insecurity. The Groceries Every Month (GEM) program provides a monthly food delivery to identified households with an increased need for food assistance without the requirement of a referral. GEM participants can depend on a scheduled monthly food delivery from the same friendly volunteer. The GEM program has grown to 24 volunteers and they are actively recruiting for new volunteers to grow the program. FCS also continues their emergency food deliveries each weekday. Their initiative to fulfill a service gap has strengthened their community impact and further demonstrates their invaluable partnership with CSP. Thank you FCS!
