Want to join us in making a difference in the lives of people experiencing food insecurity? We're raising money to benefit the Bull Run Unitarian Universalists (BRUU) Emergency Food Pantry, and any donation will help make an impact. Thanks in advance for your contribution to this cause that means so much to those in need near Old Town Manassas.
More information about Bull Run Unitarian Universalists: Bull Run Unitarian Universalists in Manassas, VA supports our local community by operating two food banks out of our building and providing financial assistance to families in immediate distress through our Community Assistance Fund. The BRUU Emergency Food Pantry provided food to 95 families (459 individuals) on 6/23/2020. Since we opened our pantry in 2006, we have routinely provided food to around 45 families. Now, due to the economic problems associated with Covid-19, twice as many hungry families are showing up for food. We distribute food twice a month, on the 2nd and 4th Tuesdays and are reaching out to the broader community to increase our funding to keep up with increasing needs for food. The pantry is entirely staffed by volunteers, so 100% of funds raised will go to purchase food.
11/24/2020 Update: The BRUU Food Pantry is attempting to meet an ever increasing need. More and more folks are coming every time with no end in sight. We served 205 families today!! We've doubled our goal just to keep pace.
