Who We Are
What We Do
Hunger Free Alexandria (HFA) is a community-based coalition of food providers, faith-based communities, schools, social service organizations, and advocates for ending hunger.
HFA began as a result of the identified need for such an organization in the Partnership for a Healthier Alexandria 2014 analysis and report on hunger, "Toward an End to Hunger in Alexandria." This study examined the emergency food system, access to and utilization of government food assistance programs, and the role of the private sector in food access within Alexandria. It was found that as many as 1 in 5 Alexandrians, disproportionately children, face food hardship in our city - Hunger Free Alexandria was created in order to address these issues and in doing so build a stronger community.
