Francis C. Hammond Middle School is now one of the newest participants in the Blessings In a Backpack (BIB) program, thanks to the new partnership between Communities In School of NOVA, the United Way of the National Capital Area, ALIVE (ALexandrians InVolved Ecumenically), and the Alexandria Food Center.

We are extremely thankful to our partners and excited to start this program that will help our students face that frightening question of “What am I going to eat this weekend?” This is just the start!
