Distributing nearly a million pounds of food each year to our food insecure neighbors in Northern VA

Nearly 20 thousand people in Arlington County are “food insecure,” meaning they often don’t know where their next meal is coming from.  That’s nearly 10% of the population of a county that is consistently ranked among the best places to live in America.  That number skyrockets to almost a quarter-million people when you consider the 21-county area covered by the Catholic Diocese of Arlington.  Thankfully, Catholic Charities and their Saint Lucy Food Project are on the case, offering help to anyone who needs it and flexible volunteer programs to anyone who wants to serve – both regardless of beliefs.  Today’s guest, Vince Cannava, is the Program Director and Food Source Developer at Saint Lucy.  Vince is here to share his experiences distributing food to 53 parishes across the Diocese and how you can join in on your own terms and help your neighbors in need.
