Every Saturday afternoon The Salvation Army Canteen delivers food to those suffering from poverty. Families wait in line at two locations. The Big Lots parking lot located at 300 Enterprise Street in Sterling and at the Loudoun County Government Shenandoah building parking lot at 102 Heritage Way NE in Leesburg. Volunteers from churches in the community prepare the meals in either their home or church. Our mobile kitchen gets those meals out into the community.
