Hunger Relief Starts Here
Feed More collects, prepares and distributes food in order to bring hunger relief to neighbors in need throughout Central Virginia. Our comprehensive programs and Agency Network are dedicated to providing our neighbors who face hunger nourishment and hope.
We have been in Central Virginia for five decades. Meals on Wheels was established in 1967, where it served just eight clients, and the Central Virginia Food Bank has been in operation since 1980. The Central Virginia Food Bank was created by 60 local churches and charities that were concerned about growing hunger and poverty in the region.
In 2005, the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels came together and built a joint kitchen, called the Community Kitchen, to cost effectively create cooked-from-scratch meals for neighbors in need. This led to the formal merger of the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels, and on July 1, 2008 Feed More was born.
With nearly 100 employees, more than 250 agencies and over 200 volunteers a day, Feed More is able to carry out its mission of fighting hunger throughout its vast service area. Our fleet of over 20 trucks and 36,000-square feet of storage allow us to delivery more than 34 million pounds of grocery product through our Food Bank Distribution Network and Pauley Family Cooler out to neighbors in need.
