Food Pantry & Clothes Closet Volunteers

NetworkPeninsula / Food Pantry & Clothes Closet Volunteers

Food is by far our greatest outreach program..  It takes a small army to pick up, sort and distribute food to our community.  In 2018, we received over 400,000 pounds of food into the Center!  A lot of food we receive is through our Food Recovery Program.  This is a food “rescue” program through the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank that allows us to pick up food at local grocery stores and restaurants.  We pick up food 6 days a week and from multiple locations on some days.

We currently have the following needs for food pick up if you are looking for a way to get involved with our ministry and can help:
