Helping Hungry Kids of Northern Virginia (HHK) was established in 2009 to provide weekend food bags to Reston elementary school children who often go hungry on weekends. This program was further expanded to provide in-school snack bars to those children often too hungry to focus on their school work.
HHK donates over 13,000 shelf-stable weekend bags over a typical school year to participating schools, including Dogwood, Terraset, Clearview, Coates, Armstrong, Aldrin, Herndon, Hunters Woods, Forest Edge and Cub Run. Each weekly bag contains non-perishable items including milk, oatmeal, fruit cups and other items sufficient to provide 2 breakfasts, 2 lunches, 2 dinners and 2 snacks to each child. Additionally, HHK also provides over 50,000 snacks each school year.
Helping Hungry Kids is a supported and fiscally sponsored CORE Cause through the CORE Foundation, a 501(c)3, EIN #20-5997764 registered to solicit donations in the state of Virginia. Donations are tax deductible to the fullest extent of the law.
Throughout COVID-19 HHK has provided 350 weekend food bags weekly. HHK’s future depends on continuing assistance from loyal supporters. Won't you help us make a difference with your donation?
