Helping Hungry Kids

Helping Hungry Kids of Northern Virginia (HHK) provides roughly 13,000 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.
