Our MISSION is to provide nourishing food to our neighbors in need through vibrant community partnerships and passionate public support. Our VISION is that everyone has enough to eat. Founded in 1981, today the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank serves 25 counties and 8 cities on either side of the Blue Ridge through distribution centers in Charlottesville, Lynchburg, Winchester and our headquarters in Verona. We provide nutritious food to 103,500 people each month through a far-reaching network of over 200 food pantries, soup kitchens, schools, churches and other nonprofit groups. We are members of Feeding America, a national organization supporting more than 200 food banks across the country, and the largest domestic hunger relief agency in the U.S. We are also members of the Federation of Virginia Food Banks, an association of the seven food banks in Virginia.
