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 threefold purpose of our mission is to reduce 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 to distribute via their pantries or kitchens.
If you are in need of emergency food assistance, call the food bank in Salem at 540-342-3011 (for Salem, Roanoke, Alleghany Highlands, and the Southside counties) or in Abingdon at 276-628-9266 (for Abingdon, Bristol, Wytheville and the far Southwestern Virginia counties).
You can also send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org - please include your zip code and your nearest cross streets and you will be referred to a pantry near your home..
