Our Mission...
 

BetterALife is working to eliminate hunger and food insecurity for local children across Northern Virginia. We believe a child will improve their study habits and increase their opportunities for success by starting their day with a full belly, without worry of where their next meal will come from.

 

“After multiple risk factors are considered, children that live in households that are food insecure, even at the lowest levels, are likely to be sick more often, recover from illness more slowly, and be hospitalized more frequently. Lack of adequate food can impair a child’s ability to concentrate and perform well in school and is linked to higher levels of behavioral and emotional problems from preschool through adolescence. Food insecurity can affect children in any community, not only traditionally underserved ones.”

 We are excited to announce the countdown to our second annual Charity Gala! Please mark your calendar and join us for a masquerade themed evening of dinner, dancing, and an overflowing silent auction to help raise funds to fight child hunger.

WHAT PEOPLE SAY

New BookBags.heic

School Principal In Sterling VA

"Elizabeth reached out to me in January of 2017...out of the blue, a blessing to our community!  Without knowing our students and families, she offered to pay off lunch debts.  This continued over the course of many years; it almost seemed like Elizabeth had a sense as to when we were most in need."

School Principal, Leesburg VA

"I just wanted to send a communication thanking you for the check that was dated 10/22/2019.  We appreciate your support"

School Principal, Sterling Va

"Ms. Ford, Thank you for another generous donation for our students!  You bless us so immensely! I really appreciate you."
