Weekend Power Pack

The Weekend Power Pack (WPP) program is designed to help supplement a child’s basic need for food when they are not in school. The program provides nutrition support to  Fauquier County Public School, VPI, and Headstart students on weekends, school holidays, and snow days. Weekly ‘power packs’ include non-perishable, healthy, and nutritious food items.

Summer Food Assistance

WPP provides summer ‘power packs’ to students attending Fauquier Communitiy Child Care (FCCC) summer camps, students enrolled in FCPS summer school, and at all Fauquier Reaches for Excellence in School Health (FRESH) summer events. Date, time, and location of FRESH events can be viewed here.  Just ask for a Weekend Power Pack at the registration table.

School Year Food Assistance

Families interested in receiving Weekend Power Pack assistance should contact your child’s guidance counselor for enrollment information. You may also contact and we can send you the contact information. There are no qualifications for participation. Once enrolled in the program, your child will be given a grocery bag of breakfast, meals, and snacks to take home each week. Bags will be distributed discretely, at the end of the school day.  Your child  will also receive food during school holidays, including Thanksgiving, Christmas, Spring break, and all 3-day weekends.
