Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore


Our community service project for the April 8, 2021 meeting is a donation drive for the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore. The mission of the Foodbank is leading the effort to eliminate hunger in our community. In addition, they are committed to ending hunger by understanding and addressing the root causes of food insecurity that contribute to needing food assistance. Since 1981, the Foodbank has been providing food for hungry people throughout Southeastern Virginia and on the Eastern Shore.  They accomplish this mission in a variety of ways; through Food and Fund Drives, by organizing and distributing food, and by recruiting and supporting partner agencies.

For more information about the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore, visit their website at https://foodbankonline.org
