Our Mission

With a mission of "Building collective power within our network to create a hunger-free region," the primary mission of the Federation of Virginia Food Banks and its network is to feed hungry Virginians.

These agencies operate programs such as soup kitchens, after school programs, senior centers and elderly feeding programs, the Kids Cafe® Program, Head Start, transitional housing, mental health programs, homeless and domestic violence shelters, and individual household distribution.
