LOUDOUN HUNGER RELIEF
Loudoun Hunger Relief (LHR) has been Loudoun County’s primary emergency food pantry since 1991.
Over the last two decades, there have been economic disruptions that have caused long-term increases in the number of Loudoun residents needing food assistance.
LHR is currently serving about 650 families each week, up from 250 families a week pre-pandemic.
The United Way estimates that about 27,000 households of Loudoun’s 133,000 households live paycheck to paycheck-on the edge of making it.
That’s 1 in 5 of our neighbors.
LHR is expanding its physical space to meet the need through a public-private partnership with Loudoun County that increases the LHR facility
from 4300 square feet to 13500 square feet.
The Claude Moore Charitable Foundation has provided the lead gift for the project.
The expansion allows LHR to establish a full-choice free market for our neighbors in need who want the ability to choose their own food.
The new facility will increase LHR’s warehouse capacity.
LHR will anchor a new Human Services Hub located in the new space. The hub will house literacy, employment, health and benefits services to allow access to multiple supports under one roof. This will simplify an overwhelming process of getting support for our struggling neighbors.
When our community takes care of our most vulnerable members, everyone wins.
We need your help to get this project done to make our community stronger–a better place to live, work and do business.
Join hundreds of your Loudoun neighbors and give today!
