How We Work

How We Work


We collect and prepare donated and purchased food

Feeding Southwest Virginia secures donations from the food manufacturing and grocery industries, government agencies, individuals and community food drives.


We Partner to Distribute Food

Our partner agencies select food and grocery products from one of our two warehouses or pick them up from our participating retail partners.


We Are Funded by Donors Like You

The work of the food bank is only possible thanks to private charitable support. Your donations help our network programs distribute food whenever and wherever it is need to Southwest Virginia households.


Food is Provided to People in Need

We advocate on behalf of the hungry families in our communities by educating our government and policy leaders about the presence of hunger in our local neighborhoods.

Your support changes lives

By supporting our feeding programs, you ensure that no matter the age, health or location of our clients, they will get the food they need most to survive. From the Mobile Food Pantry, to the Veggie Mobile, to the children’s feeding program at local libraries, your support changes lives.
