In Loudoun County alone, there are approximately 11,330 children that are food insecure. Food insecure is "the limited or uncertain availability of nutritionally adequate and safe food." Last school year, 1 in 6 Loudoun County school children qualified for free or reduced-price school lunches. The government has provided for these children to eat lunch, but their dinner is never guaranteed. At Destiny Church, we want to make sure these children never have to worry where their next meal is coming from by partnering with the Loudoun County Backpack Buddies Program.
