Snack Pack Program

The ECF Snack Pack Program (SPP) partners with the Volunteer Fairfax and Food for Others - Power Pack Program (P3) to provide weekend food to students who have been identified as having a need for food assistance in the Fairfax County public elementary schools. In 2020, during the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day of Service, the SPP & P3 volunteers packed more than 1500 packages of non-perishable foods and drinks that were provided to the P3 program to be distributed to elementary schools within the Fairfax County school system.
