SERVE’s Hunger Resource Center (HRC, or Centro de Recursos para Prevenir el Hambre) provides nearly 600 Prince William County families every month with:
Emergency food assistance
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. Many of our clients are forced to choose between putting food on the table or paying their household bills. The HRC helps families avoid this difficult choice — and stave off the perils of homelessness.
“Because of NVFS, I was able to improve my grades at school, and avoid drugs and negative friends. With the help of NVFS, I now have my driver’s license and am looking forward to graduating from high school next month, so I can study to be a math teacher.”
