Helping Hungry Kids

Helping Hungry Kids of Northern Virginia (HHK) provides roughly 1,300 bagged weekend meals a year to kids on free and reduced lunches who would not otherwise be assured of a meal when they aren't at school.


Among the participating Northern Virginia Schools receiving these meals is Dogwood Elementary, our sister school in Reston.

HHK DonationsDonations for meal assembly

These meal bags require shelf-stable food supplies – and lots of them! So we're inviting all students to donate food for this project. Students can drop off food donations from May 9 to May 20 in the gray bins located throughout the school. Donations can also be dropped off at the Bobcat Spring Celebration on May 13. To ensure these bags have all the needed items, we’ve created a sign-up form for donations, and we’ve broken down the needed items by grade. Check back for the donation sign-up link.


One weekend meal bags include 2 breakfast items, 2 lunch items, 2 dinner items, 2 snack items, and 2 milk boxes.
