The Piedmont Environmental Council recently held an Open House & Family Day at PEC’s Community Farm at Roundabout Meadows, near Aldie. The outing featured children’s activities for face painting, a scavenger hunt, and a pollinator habitat creation station. There were group farm tours with details on the farm’s role providing healthy, locally-grown produce to food-insecure families in Loudoun County, through its donations to Loudoun Hunger Relief.

Loudoun County is one of the wealthiest and most rapidly developing jurisdictions in our country. And yet, more than 14,000 Loudoun community members—half of them children—are food insecure.
