Be the Change
Support school food pantries in Sterling, VA

In the twelve schools in Sterling that St. Matthew's serves, there are over 4,800 children who meet the definition of Economically Disadvantaged – a designation that means a student qualifies for the federally subsidized meals program, which means they are at or near poverty levels. Each of these schools has started food pantries on-site to support the needs of these families.
