A few words

About Us


Our story started 39 years ago.

LOFP is in its 39th year of providing food for its neighbors.  In 1985, Rev. Bruce Johnson of the Pentecostal Holiness Church at 225 Spicer’s Mill Road in Orange knew of 50 elderly church members and neighbors who needed food.  The Thomas Jefferson Area Food Bank (now the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank) had recently opened a location in Ruckersville.  Rev. Johnson went there to buy food at greatly reduced prices and so the Love Outreach Food Pantry began its service to the hungry.  The food was stored in the church closet.  38 years later, the food pantry and clothes closet have a long and proud history of serving their neighbors.
