Eradicating Hunger in our Community

One in six children go hungry everyday in the United States. In Prince William County alone, 14,000 children in our community go hungry during the summer months while not in school. The C.H.O.W. Wagon Initiative offers multi-layered support to County residents most in need of resources to combat food insecurity and hunger. A child’s ability to realize their future potential is often dependent on the resources they have today. Children exposed to food insecurity are of particular concern to PWCCF and our C.H.O.W. Wagon Initiative given the implications scarce food resources pose to a child’s health and development.


Children who are food insecure are more likely to be hospitalized and may be at higher risk for developing chronic diseases such as obesity as a result of lower quality diet, anemia, and asthma. In addition, food-insecure children may also be at higher risk for behavioral and social issues including fighting, hyperactivity, and anxiety, and bullying. To help these economically disadvantaged children, PWCCF transports meals to neighborhood children in need to help combat the food insecurity that exists in our community.

Providing Opportunities for Students

Scholarships provide an opportunity for many people to earn an education. Without assistance from outside sources, students may have trouble paying for an education after high school in order to enter the workforce and become contributing members of society.


The Prince William County Community Foundation provides scholarships to high school seniors attending a Prince William County Public School that demonstrate a passion for serving their local community and have a financial need to pursue post-high school course of study at either college/university or other post-secondary educational institutions.
