The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore 's primary mission is leading the effort to eliminate hunger in our community. 


In order to meet this challenge, the Foodbank helps feed those who are hungry in our community by distributing food through ove 400 Partner Agencies including soup kitchens, food pantries, and emergency shelters and Programs like our Mobile Pantry, Kids Cafe® and BackPack Programs . 

The Foodbank receives food from restaurants, supermarkets, food distributors, the USDA, farmers, wholesalers, sportsmen, food and fund drives, and through purchased product when donations alone simply cannot meet demand.  Our national network affiliation, Feeding America™, also has memorandums of understanding with the Red Cross, Salvation Army, and EFSP. The Foodbank, and food banks across the country, act as the food component in disaster relief efforts.
