Changes to the Weekend Food Bag Program


Dogwood’s Weekend Food Bag Program through Helping Hungry Kids of Northern Virginia (“HHK”) will be returning to in-school distribution for in-person students starting on Friday, May 14.  Your in-person student will be bringing home a letter this week discussing the program changes.  Should your in-person student need a weekend food bag, please sign and return the letter to your child’s teacher as soon as possible.  Parents and guardians of students remaining as virtual learners may continue to receive a bag on Fridays 8am-12:30pm at Door #1.  We are here to support your family’s needs so if you have any questions about this program or resources related to other types of supports, including wellness/mental health, please contact a parent liaison at 703.262.3912.
