Alison Padget, Food for Others
Food Insecurity in NoVa
Our club meetings continue on 1st & 3rd Thursdays at 6.30pm. Now via Zoom, led by Pres. Rene Calandria.

Our program speaker for Thursday, Aug. 20 is:

Alison Padget, Director of Development and Outreach, at Food for Others -- which distributes food to our local neighbors in need nmby mobilizing our communuty and volunteers. Here in our nation’s capital area, the high cost of living forces many families who are struggling to make ends meet to choose between spending money for food, or on other basic needs such as housing and healthcare. Food for Others is an important part of Northern Virginia’s safety net for those needing food when an emergency strikes and for the growing number of working poor who need to supplement their inadequate food supplies.
