Who Are We?
Feeding America Southwest Virginia handles distribution of donated food to member organizations so the food can be delivered or picked up by those who are in need. Food is donated by manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, USDA and others. A network of hundreds of member agencies such as churches, soup kitchens, shelters, children's centers and others come to the Food Bank to select food and products they can use to help those in need. Member agencies distribute the food free of charge directly to the disadvantaged.

The Southwestern Virginia Second Harvest Food Bank provides food for an estimated 298,975 different people annually. Weekly 89,098 different people are assisted. The threefold purpose is to end local hunger and malnutrition, eliminate food waste by salvaging and redirecting surplus food and to be a resource to non-profit organizations by providing them with good food at a very low cost.
