About this organization






For over 35 years, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore has provided over 300 million meals to those in our community who face hunger. Through our programs, facilities, and large network of community partners, we eliminate hunger on a daily basis for many. However, we understand that our current work addresses hunger for individuals in the short term. It does not address the root causes which force individuals to return to a food pantry again and again. This understanding has led to the creation of a 3-year strategic plan aimed to move Hampton Roads closer to achieving the mission of eliminating hunger for those we serve—not only for the day, or for the week, but for a lifetime.


Norfolk food distribution - during FY19, the Norfolk warehouse and our partner agencies provided over 15,521,375 million pounds of food and grocery products (equivalent to 12,934,427 million meals) to more than 177,000 individuals in the cities of Chesapeake, Franklin, Norfolk, Portsmouth, Suffolk, Virginia Beach and the counties of Isle of Wight, Southhampton, and Sussex.
