Update on Emergency Food Service Through the End of March & a Link To Job Loss Resources

We hope you and yours are well and safe, and will remain that way.

We are so grateful for the generosity of so many in our community!

With you, we are hoping for this hard time to pass quickly, and normalcy to return. In the meantime, we are scaling to meet the oncoming need with a steady supply of food and the best service we can provide while maintaining proper distance and following all CDC guidelines.

From mid-March until the end of March, you have helped Loudoun Hunger Relief provide over 5500 emergency preparedness food kits with over 55,000 pounds of food to those in need. That's 49,500 meals! This food is going out through partner distribution channels, such as the LCPS school bus feeding routes, and through our front door. In addition, more than 25,000 pounds of food has gone out in our regular direct client service through about 1500 visits here at the pantry. Families that visit the pantry through our curbside service appointments are getting milk, eggs, meat, produce, bakery items and more.

We continue to prepare to meet the oncoming need with unemployment filings in Virginia topping 114,000 this past week. To see the graphics on Loudoun's rates, click here.

We're keeping our eyes on the goal-to make sure that those in need have food for their families. Thanks for helping us now and always! We couldn't do this without the support of our community.
Your help is making a huge impact!
