Coronavirus Update - Ways to Support Local Organizations

Information on how to contribute food or funds to a local organization

As we confront school closures and disruption to our daily lives, FCPS is committed to providing information to families that want to help the wider community.

Many nonprofit and faith-based organizations provide supplemental food and other services to our students and families. Their needs are ongoing.  

Donate to the Foundation for FCPS

The Foundation has established the "Access for All" fund to provide support to our most vulnerable students and their families as we navigate through this crisis. Funds raised will provide access to distance learning for the nearly 60,000 students who live in poverty. These students need access to technology, school supplies, and connectivity, as well as nutrition. Thank you for your support.

Food Distribution Guidelines for Community Partners

Fairfax County Public Schools leadership has approved that school principals can allow non-profit organizations to be on school property to distribute bulk food, personal hygiene, or other packaged items.

FCPS is committed to keeping their communities safe. All non-profit organizations are expected to adhere to the Centers for Prevention and Disease Control (CDC) guidelines regarding social distancing, cleaning procedures, and ensuring that non-profit personnel and volunteers are healthy and have not been in contact with anyone that has, or is suspected of having, COVID-19.

  • Food Distribution Guidelines for Community Partners

    Approval from the school principal must be received before any distribution plans can be made, and these guidelines must be followed. FCPS may ask a community partner to leave school grounds if the guidelines are not consistently met.
