**In an effort to practice social distancing guidelines as recommended by health officials, the Foodbank is suspending all volunteer shifts, effective immediately. We thank everyone for their commitment to serving the Foodbank with your time and energy and will continue to update you on alternative ways to assist and notify you when volunteer shifts will reconvene.**
A few hours are all it takes to help raise awareness and eliminate hunger in our community.
Every time you volunteer with the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia, you know that you have helped put food on the table of our neighbors in need. Volunteers are critical in our efforts to provide healthy, nutritious food to our community, so please consider helping out as an individual, small group or organization. We have several different levels of involvement and many different kinds of volunteer opportunities.
Start a Food Pantry
Your church or organization can become an official partner agency with your food pantry or soup kitchen. Hungry people in our community rely on convenient and reliable sources of food and you can help them get easier access to the nutritious food they need.
By choosing to be an advocate for the Foodbank, you can voice your concerns on issues related to hunger to your legislative body. You can help raise awareness in your communities so that others are aware of the hunger epidemic and how they can help.
