With over 67,000 people in Fairfax County facing food insecurity, over 1,000 community members came together for the event at Fairfax High School. The event, complete with face-painting, live music, and a “living painting” comprised of community members, was made possible by countless Paxton employees and dedicated volunteers. Upon conclusion of the event, all donations were brought to Our Daily Bread Food Pantry, amounting to over 9,300 meals for community members in need and over $3,000 in grocery store gift cards and cash.

Everyone at Move For Hunger would like congratulate Paxton on another successful event and extend our sincerest gratitude for their continued commitment to fighting hunger!
