Loudoun Hunger Relief is a 2018 recipient of a Dominion Foundation Critical Community Needs Grant. The $10,000 award will help fund its new produce distribution hub.
The grant will pay for a refrigerated freight container to handle incoming produce and stage it for distribution to LHR’s 15 human service agency partners and to provide reusable plastic containers to properly store and transport the produce. Last year, the distribution hub served 5,000 Loudouners.
“Through the assistance of Dominion Foundation’s grant, Loudoun Hunger Relief looks forward to expanding our produce distribution hub in the upcoming growing season,” stated LHR Executive Director Jennifer Montgomery. “We will improve the efficiency of the operations, and make it easier than ever for low-income families in Loudoun to have access to healthy foods.”
Established in 1991, Loudoun Hunger Relief, last year served 8,000 Loudoun residents through more than 73,000 visits, distributing 1.4 million pounds of food. For more information, of to loudounhunger.org or call 703-777-5911.
