  • The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore is carefully monitoring developments regarding the spread of COVID-19 (Coronavirus) in our community. They will continue to serve our community as effectively as they can for as long as we can.


  • The Foodbank is suspending Friday USDA Distributions until April 3, 2020. To ensure individuals and families still have access to nutritious food, the Foodbank has partnered with the YMCA of South Hampton Roads to offer supplemental distributions at several YMCA locations throughout the region.


  • Through this partnership, the Foodbank has opened four food distribution sites and five food donation drop-off sites at YMCA locations. Utilizing Foodbank and YMCA staff for distribution and collection operations, the distributions will use a drive-thru, grab and go model that is an adaptation of the Foodbank’s current Mobile Pantry Program — aimed at practicing safe social distancing and protecting the health and wellbeing of staff and individuals receiving and donating food.
