Prince William County Community Foundation

In Prince William County, an alarming 44% (more than double the national average) of food-insecure children reside in households with incomes 185% above the federal poverty level and are not eligible for federal nutrition assistance. Though all of PWCCF’s programs – in healthcare, education, and wellbeing – are important, addressing food insecurity is central.

PWCCF works with individuals, the school system, local businesses, and nonprofits to make it easier for food-insecure residents to acquire and prepare food that is desired, usable, and nutritious while also working toward a food-secure future for all. The most prominent initiative is Combating Hunger on Wheels (CHOW), which supports over 14,000 food-insecure children and residents by placing nutritionally adequate foods right in their hands through mobile distribution and community outreach. Since the start, PWCCF has served over 150,000 meals to 9,000 families. Let’s eradicate childhood hunger in our community.
