No Child Goes Hungry (NCGH) is pleased to share that it has donated $1,000 to Britepaths’ Food4Thought Program and its partner school Frost Middle School in Fairfax, VA, to help it provide weekend food packs for students in need.
Representatives from Britepaths met on November 8, 2019, with NCGH Director Rev. Kären Rasmussen (also a Britepaths Board Member) to celebrate the donation with Frost Middle School Principal Anthony Harris, and the program organizers. With this support, along with generous donations from community members, Food4Thought is off and running for the school year. NCGH has donated a total of more than $6,000 to Food4Thought Partner Schools since its inception in 2016.
Britepaths is an Ignite Partner with Fairfax County Public Schools (FCPS) and currently works with 20 FCPS schools to support their efforts to provide weekend food to students in need at their schools. In 2018, 841 students received food through Food4Thought.

Through a shared grant from Fairfax County, Britepaths partners with Food for Others to assist as many students in need as possible across FCPS with weekend food support. Food for Others mainly receives and distributes packs to Title 1 schools, while Britepaths works with Partner Schools to help them serve their students through volunteer and community support.
