Feeding the Hungry, Nourishing the Soul


Close to 200,000 people in the Arlington Diocese are food insecure, meaning they do not know where their next meal is coming from. As a Catholic response to the hunger and food insecurity in our Diocese, Catholic Charities conducts a diocesan-wide outreach to collect and distribute food where it is most needed through the St. Lucy Food Project.

St. Lucy Food Project

Catholic Charities believes passionately in a future without hunger.  If you're in need of food, please click on our local pantries list to find a food distribution location near you.
