ALEXANDRIA, VA – Food insecurity has been a concern during the pandemic. Regular food distribution events in Alexandria help residents in need. The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) is another resource. Recently, SNAP received a $10,000 donation from an anonymous donor.

The donation will support the Double Dollars program, per the request of the donor. This program permits SNAP users to receive up to $20 dollars in eligible food at area farmers markets. SNAP helps families who cannot afford to purchase food themselves

Double Dollars assists families in making heather food choices, and the program supports farmers markets.

If you would like to contribute, donations are still being accepted. For more information, call 703.746.5700 or email [email protected].
