Donated Food

Your  donations of food, greatly help the Food Bank’s mission of fighting hunger in your community.

While the Food Bank depends on corporate retail donors, government programs and major suppliers for much of the food and other products it distributes, we never lose sight of the importance of the individual’s gift.  One person … one company … one farmer … one civic organization … the Food Bank of the Albemarle is grateful for whatever you are able to contribute.
