NO STERLING COMMUNITY CENTER MOBILE MARKET ON MON. MARCH 4TH!
Any Loudoun household who needs help with food and groceries may visit Loudoun Hunger Relief up to once per week at any LHR service location that is most convenient to you. You will be able to receive enough groceries to prepare three nutritionally-balanced meals for at least three days for every member in your household.
Our Leesburg Pantry is BY APPOINTMENT ONLY! **NEW AS OF SEPTEMBER 2023** At the Leesburg pantry, you have the option of choosing a “CURBSIDE” appointment or “IN-PERSON” appointment. On the appointment scheduling website, be sure you know which appointment you are choosing by clicking in the drop-down menu. Our appointments open 7 calendar days in advance, so we recommend making your appointment online immediately when it opens. If the day you want is greyed out, that means the slots are completely filled for the day and you should schedule for a different day.
CURBSIDE: Fill out the wish list and choose a time and day for your appointment. When you arrive, you should park in one of the numbered curbside spaces in front of the sliding door. Text us at (571) 440-7681 and let us know your first & last name and which parking space number you are parked in. (**Please note, this number above is for curbside arrivals only. We do not answer calls or questions through this chat**). A volunteer or staff member will pack your order inside and bring it out to your car. When you’re finished loading your car, please bring your cart back inside of the market.
IN-PERSON: Choose a time and day for your appointment. When you arrive, you should park in any space not labeled for curbside and come inside the main sliding doors to check-in at the front desk no more than 5 minutes before your appointment time. You will be directed to a shopping cart based on your family size. You may then pick the items you and your family may need for about a week. If there are limits on certain items, you will see it clearly listed in the market. Remember that we are donation-based and serving about 850 families every week; we ask that you please only take items that you and your family need to get you through the week. When you’re finished loading your car, please bring your cart back inside of the market.
We have Spanish speaking staff and volunteers available on the phones and in-person during office hours. Our staff can help you with special dietary requirements and can also help you determine if you qualify for USDA assistance. PLEASE call to cancel your appointment if you can’t make it at 703-777-5911.
There is no appointment needed for the mobile sites in Sterling. These mobile sites are designed for families in Loudoun who can’t make it to our pantry in Loudoun. We are providing pre-packed bags of food and we cannot guarantee what will be in each bag. If you have special or severe dietary restrictions, we recommend you make an appointment at our Leesburg location.
FOR DONATIONS: Please donate during our available donation hours listed above. Please don’t leave food outside while we’re closed. Donations of furniture or clothing are NOT accepted by LHR. They are accepted by other agencies in our area who can make good use of them.
The Mobile Market project is funded in part by Department of Housing and Urban Development Community Development Block Grant funds administered by the Loudoun County Department of Family Services.
