Loaves & Fishes Food Pantry

The St. Lucy Project
Feeding the Hungry, Nourishing the Soul

Catholic Charities of the Diocese of Arlington (CCDA) believes passionately in a future without hunger. Right now, approximately 219,000 people (from Feeding America statistics) in our diocese are food insecure—they do not know where their next meal will come from.

In response, Catholic Charities has re-energized its food distribution program by adding a food donation and wholesale distribution location in Manassas, and increasing food to its three CCDA pantry locations in—Alexandria, Front Royal, and Leesburg. The warehouse connects a diocesan-wide network of many parish and interfaith/community based pantries. These pantries are served by your support of donated food, time or financial gifts in support of The St. Lucy Project.
