What is Complete the Circle?

Complete the Circle is a creative, meaningful service project for groups, individuals, and families, where we will join together to create a “living painting” of the image above that will be photographed from the sky.  Food donations collected will "complete the circle" of giving by framing the picture that day and later feeding our neighbors in need.


Last year's "living painting"

More than 650 participants joined us on October 21, 2012 and donated 4,300 pounds of food to fight hunger and need in the Fairfax County area!  Thank you to participants, volunteers and sponsors for making a difference for our Fairfax County area neighbors in need!
