Agency Network

Working Together to Feed More

Feed More’s Agency Network is made up of more than 200 nonprofits and community organizations, including pantries, churches, emergency shelters, rehab centers, soup kitchens and senior and child care centers. Our agencies help us further extend our reach and positively impact our neighbors who struggle with hunger in Central Virginia.

Spread across our 34 county and city service area, our member agencies are diverse. From small, church-based organizations that rely solely on volunteers to operations that include a formal Board of Directors and employees. We sincerely appreciate the support and are humbled by the work these organizations do.

Agency Resources

Feed More strives to continually improve all aspects of who we are and the mission we stand behind. We are dedicated to strengthening and streamlining our operations to make them more effective and efficient, while helping our neighbors who struggle with hunger. The programs below are available for partner agencies so that they are able to better serve their communities; we also have many other Hunger Relief Programs that are accessible directly to those in need.

Programs

Each of our agencies has access to our inventory, educational programs, technical assistance, other relevant materials and so much more. To help our agencies grow and better serve their communities, we’re happy to offer programs such as:

  • Direct Store Pickup Program

    • This program enables members of Feed More’s Agency Network to pick up donations of perishable and nonperishable products from stores in their community. In addition to saving valuable time and money, our Direct Store Pickup program allows our retail partners to directly impact the communities they serve and fight food waste. Agencies commit to pick up these donations on a regular assigned schedule and report pounds received weekly.
