Once you know about the need for healthy, nourishing food in our community, you probably want to know how to help!


While BBFL’s primary function is to inspire giving and distribute the financial contributions that people so generously offer, we also partner with many programs throughout Loudoun County.



Every dollar truly makes a difference! $100 feeds nearly 20 children by providing 120 meals over the weekend. We currently give back about .95 cents for every $1 received, and all donations are tax deductible!


Volunteer Your Time

There are so many ways you can make a difference in the lives of the thousands of children throughout Loudoun County that are in need of food over the weekend and school breaks. The groups that we partner with are always looking for bulk food donations, volunteers to assist with packing bags of food for kids, and much more.


Backpack Coalition

Backpack Coalition helps to provide food for the weekend to school children. Each week volunteers help supply and pack bags that contain 6 meals and 2 snacks, plus juice and shelf milk, for a child to take home for the weekend. 

Where: North entrance of brick Rite Aid Building facing Fairfax St. @ 448 S. King Street, Leesburg (across from Safeway).


Bag Packing for teens and adults: Held most Monday nights from 11/28 through the school year from 6-8pm at warehouse address above. (No need to register, but DO check LEF Facebook page for updates or cancelations.) Great for teens needing service hours and families with children over 7 years old. 

Truck unloading: Most Tuesdays @ 12:00pm at warehouse.
