Loudoun Hunger Relief Food Distribution
Friends, St Andrew Presbyterian Church has partnered with Loudoun Hunger Relief to distribute food to those in need in our local community. Distribution will take place the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each month at the Main Street Common Apartment Complex, 119 N 16th St, #12, Purcellville.
Families are invited to serve together. Current covid 19 guidelines of mask wearing and social distancing will be practiced.
Volunteer needs are as follows:
Tuesday: 1 PM, minimum of one person to pick up produce from LHR and deliver to the narthex of St. Andrew for repackaging.
The produce comes in boxes that weigh up to 50 lbs. so extra hands are helpful.
Tuesday: 1:30 – 4 PM, approximately. This time can be adjusted if there are children who would like to help and a family needs to start a bit later.
2 – 4 persons to fill 60 bags, available at SAPC, with a compliment of the different items provided, generally potatoes, onions, another vegetable, and a fruit.
Wednesday: 1:30 – 3 PM, approximately.
Up to 5 persons to pick up bagged produce from SAPC, and transport to Main St. Common apartment complex. Loudoun Hunger Relief will be present with their truck that will bring additional food: milk, eggs, meat, etc. which will be distributed along with the produce.
Each family will be logged in to LHR as they prepare to collect their food, and then will proceed to the area where the food will be waiting. Occasionally, one person will collect food for two families if this is authorized by the LHR staff.
Many of the residents speak Spanish only, so Spanish skills are helpful, but not mandatory.
Many thanks for assistance with this project during this time of severe food insecurity for so many.
