While our area has re-emerged from Covid and indicators of economic recovery are clear, things have not improved equally for everyone.  Inflation is hitting families hard, making it challenging for people to meet their basic needs and forcing families to make difficult decisions in order to get by.

The Capital Area Food Bank’s 2023 Hunger Report found that our region is still experiencing elevated levels of food insecurity post-pandemic. Food insecurity is defined by the United States Department of Agriculture as “the lack of access, at times, to enough food for an active, healthy life” and is associated with numerous negative social and health outcomes.   In Fairfax County, a staggering 24% of residents are food insecure.
