Loudoun Farms

Did you know that you can now pick up orders from the online Marketplace at The National Conference Center? In addition, The National Drive-Thru Market doesn’t ask for any revenue from vendors; instead, they just ask for food donations for the families of furloughed employees.

It’s another example of #Loudoun working together to make it easier to support local farms and businesses - and giving back to its community.

"There is clearly no game book detailing step-by-step plays for the health crisis created by COVID-19, and certainly no leadership guide for a forced economic shutdown. Perhaps that is why we find it so impressive to witness innovative, creative and effective programs small business quickly put in place to make a difference."

Thank you to GAM Graphics and Marketing for the feature article highlighting our community and associate initiatives and the steps we've taken during this time.
