The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore was founded in 1981. Since its inception, the Foodbank has distributed over 214 million meals through Partner Agencies and Programs within the community. The Foodbank has changed over the years and continues to adapt to the needs of the individuals we serve, but the mission remains to lead the effort to eliminate hunger in our community.


The Foodbank building is accessible to physically challenged individuals. If you need any additional reasonable accommodation in order to attend a function at the Foodbank, please contact Mr. Van Woods, CFO, at 757-314-4547 so that we can accommodate your need.
