Food banks provide food to people who otherwise might go hungry. Established in 1986, the Virginia Peninsula Foodbank has been the leading hunger relief organization across the greater Peninsula region, serving the 1 in 7 Virginians who struggle with hunger in the cities of Hampton, Newport News, Poquoson, and Williamsburg, and the counties of Gloucester, James City, Mathews, Surry, and York. In order to meet the consistent need for healthy meals in our community, the Foodbank partners with over 200 member agencies and programs, including faith-based organizations, food pantries, soup kitchens, shelters, and community centers across our service area. These agencies and programs offer an essential resource for individuals, families, seniors, children, and veterans who confront the challenge of food insecurity. Together, we have provided over 189 million meals. Hunger relief is truly a collaborative effort, and with the support of our partner agencies, generous donors, and committed volunteers, we are able to provide nourishment and hope to our neighbors in need each day.
