Unfortunately, we have many FHES Foxes living with food insecurity. Do you want to help our Care and Share program meet this vital need? With food donations from you, this program ensures that Fort Hunt students at risk of weekend hunger receive a bag (backpack) of food that is child-friendly, nutritious, nonperishable and easy to prepare/eat.


Each school year we were able to help over 40 Fort Hunt students each week as well as, provide 40 families with Holiday meal bags at Thanksgiving, Christmas and Spring Break.


To help, please donate ready-to-eat foods like the items listed below. We are especially in need of lunch/dinner items. Donations may be dropped off in the front office.  For additional donations and/or to order online please see our Care & Share Wish List. If you prefer to write a check, please write it out to 'Ft Hunt PTA' and note 'Care and Share' in the memo line.
