Feed Loudoun Plant a Row was recently awarded a $4,900 grant from 100 Women Strong, an organization formed to leverage significant philanthropic resources for charitable needs in Loudoun County.
This grant will help pay for the filing of the 501(c)(3) application as well as enable them to fund their mission to promote the growing and donation of local fresh produce through individual gardeners, farmers and agri-businesses. One hundred percent of the collected produce is given to Loudoun Interfaith Relief food pantry and then distributed to those in need.
Other recipients of grants include Blue Ridge Speech & Hearing, Loudoun Community Health Center, INOVA Foundation, Loudoun Citizens for Social Justice, Loudoun Abused Women’s Shelter, The Good Shepherd Alliance, and Loudoun Cares.
According to 100 Women Strong Secretary Barbara Schaufeld, the groups were chosen because they will help these organizations fill some of the greatest current need across the county.
