As you can imagine, the Prince William County Community Foundation is very busy during this time as we formed the COVID-19 Food Distribution Response Team for Prince William County, Virginia. We provide coordinated response efforts to food insecurity in the Greater Prince William area. Along with the Prince William Food Rescue, we have over 30 county agencies and organizations, our Schools as well as State efforts, to help combat the food insecurities that exist in our community. Our County Board of Supervisors has partnered with us as a key element of the task force that was created. Since the Governor of Virginia has closed schools for the rest of the year, the Foundation has served over 150 families weekly in order to provide nutritious food to the children in our community during the weekends. We distribute to children and families every Friday and provide food to organizations and food pantries throughout our county through our Combating Hunger on Wheels (C.H.O.W.) Initiative.
