Thank you, Giant Food

We are delighted to announce that the Nourishing Our Youth program at Giant Food resulted in a $17,750 donation to support food insecurity in FCPS! 

From June 16 to July 27, Giant Food Stores invited customers to round up their grocery purchases and support of local public school districts’ food and meal programs. FCPS will be able to use these funds to supplement its meal programs such as covering outstanding student meal debt, expanding food distribution programs, creating on-campus food pantries, and supplying extra weekend meals.

Thank you to Giant Food!
