Healthy Harvest Food Bank

The food bank team knows the faces of hunger in the region are children who require adequate nutrition to succeed in school and grow to their potential; seniors on a limited budget; and families challenged by economic circumstances. One in six neighbors in need struggle with food insecurity, making the services offered at the food bank critical for every struggling family, child and senior who deserves access to healthy, nutritious food.

Healthy Harvest Food Bank offers comprehensive hunger solutions that target the region’s most vulnerable neighbors.  Serving six counties in Virginia’s Northern Neck and Upper Middle Peninsula as the only organization of its kind in the region, the food bank is committed to increasing its capacity to meet future demand, offer educational programs to children as well as clients with health-related dietary issues and increase the nutritional value of food provided locally and across the state of Virginia.

The concept is simply people helping people with 96% of the organization’s operating expenses going directly to feeding those in need through its programs and services.  The organization is dedicated to being at the center of change for generations to come so that they can continue to do more for those who need it most.  The food bank of the future will focus on the overall health of recipients and empower them through educational programs with the goal of leading them to self-sufficiency, reducing their long-term dependency on the core food distribution program.
