**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 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.
