Ampersand Pantry Project Marks Anniversary of Free Lunch Program

The volunteers of The Ampersand Pantry Project were joined by Leesburg Mayor Kelly Burk this morning to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the special program to provide free lunches and other supplies to families during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

Every day since last April, families have lined up at the former Tastee Freez building on East Market Street to receive a free lunch prepared by a local restaurant, along with flowers, diapers and other staples. 

Through this week, more that 93,000 meals have been served through the project.
