Donate to Manassas Food Warehouse

How to help

The St. Lucy Food Project operates a 6,000 sf warehouse in Manassas that serves as a food donation site and distribution hub for the Diocese (PDF). The warehouse includes refrigeration and freezer capabilities to safely store and distribute fresh produce, dairy, and meat.

Donations are properly sorted and packed for distribution to more than 80 pantry partners and distribution sites using a fleet of refrigerated trucks and vans to deliver food throughout the Diocese of Arlington. A dedicated group of volunteer drivers support St. Lucy staff to make sure all deliveries arrive safely on time for distribution to clients. 

Your donations help the St. Lucy Food Project provide food to struggling families inside the Arlington Diocese community. No-contact drop-off bins are located outside our office 24/7 for a safe, contact-free experience.  If you need a donation receipt, please come by Monday-Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. at 8426 Kao Cir, Manassas, VA 20110-1728.

You can also make a financial donation by designating the St. Lucy Food Project. Catholic Charities will use monetary donations for purchases to augment food offerings. 

Local parish and community food drives are the primary source of large food donations. All drives are customized to support the host and St. Lucy's mission to serve. For more information, or to arrange a time to drop off your donations, contact the Manassas warehouse at 703-479-2975 ext. 103.

Individuals and groups are welcome to volunteer their time and talent by sorting food, packing food boxes or delivering the boxes to our partners. Please call 703-479-2975 ext. 100 for volunteer opportunities and service project ideas.
