Loudoun Hunger Relief received a $8,924 grant from Safeway Foundation from its Hunger Is initiative to eradicate childhood hunger. The funds will be used to provide healthy breakfast foods to families with children.
“We’re excited that Safeway Foundation is supporting the work we do each day to help local kids start their day with a good, nutritious meal,” stated Loudoun Hunger Relief Executive Director Jennifer Montgomery. “We know that Safeway Foundation sets a high standard for its Hunger Is grant recipients because the grants only go to organizations that have the greatest impact on fighting childhood hunger. We’re proud to be part of that recipient group and thank Safeway and their customers for helping us continue to make a difference in the lives of children in Loudoun County.”
Through the Hunger Is program, each Safeway location selects a local organization or food bank to receive the donations. Funds for Loudoun Hunger’s grant were collected from patrons at the Middleburg, Leesburg, Sterling Park and CountrySide stores.
