For over thirty years, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore has worked toward the primary mission of leading the effort to eliminate hunger in our community. Over the years the Foodbank has grown in size and impact, increasing pounds of food distributed and the nutrition value of distributed food.
In order to meet this challenge, the Foodbank helps feed those who are hungry in our community by distributing food through almost 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.
The Foodbank offers a variety of Programs with the hope of ending hunger and economic disparity.
