Dulles South Food Pantry, Inc.

Goal: $5,000.00

Mission

The Dulles South Food Pantry is a multi-faith food pantry. We provide nutritious food, personal supplies and other services to those in need in Dulles South and the surrounding area regardless of income, faith or other criteria and strive to promote self-sufficiency.

Profile

As the Dulles South community keeps growing, the number of families needing assistance is also growing. The Pantry is open by appointment every Wednesday and assists 70-90 families a week.  Our slogan, "Neighbors Feeding Neighbors," truly describes our organization which is supported by the generous donations of time, money, and food by the residents and businesses of Dulles South and the surrounding community. Anyone in need may make one visit to the pantry. Those who live in South Riding, Aldie, and Brambleton may visit the pantry up to twice a month. (The Pantry's regular service area matches the school boundaries of Freedom, John Champe, future Independence, future Lightridge, Rock Ridge and Briar Woods high schools).

 

During 2018, the pantry was visited by families 3100 times and distributed more than 245,000 pounds of food. Our special Thanksgiving food distribution provided 180 families with a turkey and trimmings. Our Backpack Buddies Program is providing weekend bags for 199 food-insecure students at 14 local schools.

 

We are part of the network of the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank and Feeding America and we are grateful to their Partner Pick-Up Program where we are partnered with Walmart at Dulles Landing and Wegman's in Chantilly. We also participate in food rescue programs with several local schools. 

 

Last year, 579 volunteers donated more than 8,000 hours of their time to operate the Pantry. Upcoming in 2019, we are working to fully serve our expanded boundary (Rock Ridge and Briar Woods high school boundaries) that was added in November 2019

 

Please help us help the hungry in our community.
