The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia was established as a non-profit clearinghouse for donated food in March 1981. The Foodbank relies heavily upon the generosity of multiple donors and volunteers to keep its warehouse shelves full. Manufacturer’s product mislabeling, surplus commodities from restaurateurs, fundraising events, contributions from private citizens and United Way funds are critical elements in an elaborate supply pipeline which keeps the agency in operation. The help received is essential to providing not only food, but clothes and other basic necessities to the area’s poor. Last year, the organization provided more than 8.5 million pounds of food to recipients through its 350 member organizations.
