Food for Others (www.foodforothers.org)

MBC, working in conjunction with the Food for Others (FFO) food pantry located in Merrifield, Va., participates in FFO’s Power Pack Program (aka P3) which provides weekend packs of food to several of the children who receive free and reduced lunches at Graham Road Elementary School. MBC's involvement in the P3 program: Starting in 2012, the church became the source of the P3 kits for GRES and for the 2014-2015 school year has been doing so with help from FFO.

Prior to its participation in P3, MBC members assembled sandwiches each Sunday morning during the school year for distribution by Food for Others to individuals and families experiencing food shortages throughout Northern Virginia.
