After School Meals

Free snacks and/or meals for children at participating sites.

A private Pediatric practice pilot project to enhance existing “community”
solutions for summertime Food Insecurity.

In the summer of 2017, A pediatric primary practice responded to a serious 'HIDDEN' Healthcare need.  FOOD INSECURITY.  During the study, they found out that when the school year is over, children aren't getting the proper food nourishment.  

From June thru August 2017, we at Burke Pediatrics, LLC, want to provide a service to our children and their families that are in need of food during the summer. Through the Summer Feeding Program, which picks up to feed children when school is out, summer meals are provided at no charge to children.  To find summer meals sites in your area, please text “FOOD” or “COMIDA” to 877-877  (You could also list sites here for Fairfax County).  At barbeque sites, managed by Fairfax County, adults
can receive a meal for $2.00.

Food for Others will provide emergency food to clients who have an “RX for Food”.  These clients are able to come for food one time per week beginning on June 26th and ending on August 18th ....

Why do I have to take a survey?


We want to provide you with a prescription for food.  If you qualify, we will give you a prescription to take to our partner, Food for Others, and they will give you food for from June 2018 to Aug 2018. Your household can get food one time per week.  But you must have a 'PRESCRIPTION'.
