Loudoun Times: Loudoun Hunger Relief announces major expansion of its food pantry

Loudoun Hunger Relief announced on Monday it has started construction on a 13,500-square-foot expansion which will add approximately 9,200 square feet to its Leesburg headquarters on Miller Drive.

The project is being funded through a $3 million capital campaign, according to a press release. The Claude Moore Charitable Foundation has announced a lead gift for the campaign. Merritt Construction will contribute the architecture, building plans and general contracting in-kind.

Expanding from 4,300 to 13,500 square feet through a public-private partnership with Loudoun County, Loudoun Hunger Relief’s offerings will include a free grocery market, space for community-based human services and an expansion and consolidation of facilities and operations.

The new, full choice, free grocery market for those in need will have increased warehouse storage, truck bay, and volunteer workspace.
