About the Hunger Resource CenterSERVE's Hunger Resource Center (HRC, or Centro de Recursos para Prevenir el Hambre) provides nearly 900 Prince William County families every month with:
- Emergency food assistance
- Nutrition information
- Healthy cooking demonstrations
- Strategies for buying healthy food on a budget
Did you know? The HRC can purchase food from the Capital Area Food Bank for a flat fee of $0.19 per pound, meaning that $100 can buy more than 500 pounds of food.
The HRC helps families in Prince William County and the cities of Manassas and Manassas Park, where a total of more than 32,000 individuals face food insecurity (Feeding America, 2013). Many of our clients are forced to choose between putting food on the table or paying their housing bills. The HRC helps families avoid this difficult choice – and stave off the perils of homelessness.
