Feeding America Southwest Virginia
We strive to serve hungry children, adults, the elderly and the less fortunate by any definition at the lowest cost possible and to improve their overall quality of life by collaborating with an ever-widening network of nonprofit and faith-based food distribution agencies throughout our 26-county service area. Our ultimate goal is to eliminate hunger in Southwestern Virginia.
The Food Bank has many programs by which it supports our community, such as:
1.Kids Cafe programs that provide meals and snacks to at-risk children.
2.The Backpack Program that distributes backpacks full of food to children for weekends and school holidays.
3.Prepared and Perishable Food program that collects surplus food from restaurants.
4.Harvest Home Soup Kitchen in Abingdon.
5.Education programs on topics such as: food safety, nutrition, cooking and personal finance.
