Harley Davidson of Winchester

Every year we are greeted by men and women in leather jackets on motorcycles and with them, thousands of pounds of food! We want to give a BIG thank you to Winchester Harley Davidson Group for donating 1,032 pounds of fresh produce, turkeys, holiday fixings, pies and canned chicken breast this Thanksgiving!

Scouting for Food 2018

Thank you Scout Troops 1737 and 910 for collecting 2,225 pounds of food! We also want to give a big thanks to National Charity League and Foxcroft School for their helping hands during the food drive.

Happy Halloween!

We want to thank Long Branch Baptist Church, Emmanuel Episcopal Church and St. Stephen The Martyr, for making our Halloween Treat Bucket hand out a huge success this year! We wanted to make sure that the children we serve received a trick or treating bag or bucket filled with goodies for the holiday. We were able to assemble and hand out one hundred and one buckets and bags filled with breakfast bars, fruit cups, fruit snacks, pretzels, chips, juice boxes, pencils, stickers, toothpaste and tooth brushes!

Fill The Bus

Wakefield School hosted a food drive for us on October 10th! Each grade competed to see who could donate the most food and had the goal to fill a bus. The Windy Hill Foundation was kind enough to use their bus for this, and every seat was filled with food. Thank you Wakefield School, for donating 600 pounds!

Almost A Decade of Gleaning

We strive to provide fresh produce to those we serve all year long, and that is made possible by the generosity of local farmers’ markets. For eight years, four farmers from the Warrenton and Archwood Green Barns Farmers’ Markets have been donating excess produce to Seven Loaves from May to November, and we appreciate every pound we receive!

On Saturday’s, the Gonzales Farm and St. Anthony’s Farm have anything from tomatoes to cantaloupes perfectly organized and available for our driver to pick up at the end of the Warrenton Market. On Sunday’s, Santa Cruz Produce and Hess Family Farm at Archwood Green Barns provides us with produce such as eggplants and the record breaking 1,000 plus pounds of peaches donated last year! All of these farms are family owned and operated. They understand the need in their communities and give not to get recognition, but to provide their nutritional harvest to the fullest extent. These farmers have become a part of the Seven Loaves family, and we appreciate not only their beautiful produce, but their friendship as well. These farmers ask for nothing in return, but our volunteer drivers show their appreciation by helping break down and cleaning up the stands at both locations.

We would like to thank the Gonzales Farm, St. Anthony’s Farm, Hess Family Farm and Santa Cruz Produce for being a vital part of Seven Loaves’ mission! Your donations help further our goal to provide fresh and nutritional food to those in need.
