Feeding America Southwest Virginia was founded in 1981 and proudly commemorates 34 years of fighting hunger and changing lives through community partnerships.
The Food Bank is an affiliate member of Feeding America and for the last three decades the Food Bank’s ultimate mission has remained the same: eliminate hunger in the region.
