"To see that no one goes to bed hungry in Greene County"
The food pantry is open every Tuesday & Thursday 10am-12 noon and the third Wednesday of each month from 4-6pm. Home food deliveries are made on the third Wednesday.
****IMPORTANT**** COVID 19 (Coronavirus) response from Feeding Greene
We understand that Governor Northram’s decision to close the public schools for two weeks will impact local families and we are here to help!
Feeding Greene will be open and providing food on Tuesday and Thursday mornings from 10:00am – 12:00pm.
We will alter our process to ensure the safety of our families and our volunteers. We will be pre-bagging staples and fresh produce for individuals and families. We will also have kid specific bags that will contain snackable fruits and easy to prepare meals.
We will be using a modified drive up/walk up system to avoid any crowds and to keep germ spread to a minimum. Please bear with us as we make these necessary changes. Our priority is the safety of our families and our volunteers and part of that is to ensure that families have adequate food to make it through this difficult time.
If you find yourself in need of food and you have not been to us before, please call us at 434.985.3663 or contact us through Facebook or email email@example.com and we will get you set up and make sure you have what you need!
If you know of someone who is stuck at home and needs food, please contact us and we will do everything we can to help.
If you are in a position to help, we are purchasing many kid friendly options at drastically reduced prices from Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, please consider donating money for this cause to get us through this crisis. (Our mailing address is PO Box 13 Stanardsville, VA 22973 or you may click on the DONATE NOW Button below) Thank you for your help!!! Together we make sure everyone is supported through this crisis.
Potential new location...
In February, we found out that we could purchase a 5,000 square foot, commercial building with concrete floors and sufficient wiring for a walk-in cooler and freezer. This old grocery store is in the heart of Stanardsville near several subsidized housing units and is within walking distance of many families who visit our pantry each month. It has a receiving area and offers ample parking and privacy for the families we serve. We are so excited about this opportunity and are now in a situation where we need to raise $50,000 to close on this property by the end of March. We know it’s a tall order but we also know how amazing our supporters are and how important our work is to our community. As of March 6th, we already have $16,000 donated from our current volunteers who already work tirelessly to serve. We know we can make this happen with your help!
Interested in being a volunteer?
We would love to have you or your group join our amazing team of volunteers. We have self limited projects if your group has an afternoon to donate and we also have on-going opportunities. We value our volunteers and know that we cannot continue to do the important work of helping our neighbors without them! Please contact us at (434) 985-3663 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. You may also stop by and see all of the exciting work that happens every day at the Pantry.
