We hope that you join us in September for Hunger Action Month! As part of Feeding America’s network of over 200 food banks across the nation, we dedicate every September to raising awareness about food insecurity and calling for action from everyone in our area.
More than 193,000 of your neighbors in Central Virginia don’t know where their next meal is coming from, including almost 47,000 children. We can’t fight hunger without the generous support of our communities and this year, along with Feeding America, we are asking everyone to take action – literally!
For every action you take, whether it’s a volunteer shift at Feed More, donating food or making a financial gift to our hunger-fighting operations, every action helps us raise awareness about the serious issue of hunger in the communities we serve. You can also spread the word about Hunger Action Month on your social media and even change your Facebook frame to the Feeding America frame show you support Hunger Action Month.
And definitely be sure to check out our 30 Ways in 30 Days calendar to learn how you can take action all month long. Remember, with each action, you’re helping fight hunger one helping at a time!

Each weekday, more than 200 volunteers walk our halls and dedicate their time and talents to our mission. The great thing about volunteering at Feed More is that we’ve got something for everyone. Whether you like to do administrative work, chop vegetables in our Community Kitchen, deliver meals with our Meals on Wheels program or sort the perishable and nonperishable donations we receive from the community and corporate partners, we love our volunteers and are always looking for new people to join our mission! For more information and to fill out a volunteer application, please head over to our Volunteer page.

Whether it’s food or funds, your donation can make a huge impact on the community. By donating just $5 you’re helping us provide 20 meals to your neighbors in need. That’s a big deal! For every pound of food you bring to Feed More we’re able to distribute it across our 34 county and city service area to our network of almost 300 agencies, making your donation spread far and wide across our region.
Don’t let September pass by without showing your support for Hunger Action Month. Everyone has a role to play in the fight against hunger.
