  • Description: Our mission is to feed Southwest Virginia’s hungry through a network of partners and engage our region in the fight to end hunger. Since 1981, the Food Bank has provided millions of pounds of food and related product to hundreds of partner agencies that have served hundreds of thousands of individuals in need of emergency food assistance. Without the Food Bank’s distribution program there would be severe and detrimental effects on the disadvantaged families and individuals living in our communities. Our partner agencies include non-profit food pantries, children's feeding programs, shelters, soup kitchens, rescue missions and elderly care facilities. These partner agencies rely on the Food Bank to provide them with large quantities of food to which they may not otherwise have access.
