WELCOME

Our mission is to provide emergency and supplementary food to qualified residents of the area we serve.

RECEIVE FOOD

FACES distributions are carried out every Saturday from 8:00AM–10:30 AM from our warehouse at 482 Commerce Street, Farmville, Virginia. Registration, including documentation of residence and financial need, is required and can be done on site.

 

 VOLUNTEER

FACES is an all-volunteer organization. We warmly welcome all who can help. Our major need for volunteers is on Thursday morning 8:00AM–11:00 AM to receive and sort food; Thursday afternoon from 4:00-6:00 PM for bagging, and Saturday 7:30 AM–10:30 AM for distributions.

 

DONATE

FACES is entirely dependent on donations from the public. We welcome donations of both food and money. Because we can purchase surplus food for as little as 19 cents a pound, cash contributions purchase 5 to 10 times what they would at a retail store.

About

MANY THANKS

For the outpouring of financial support

Special thanks to WELLS FARGO BANK

whose $4,500 donation will purchase 

over 20 tons of food

 CARE ACT/STIMULUS CHECKS

Many people need this financial help to support

their family. Those of us more fortunate in this 

difficult time might consider a donation to keep

out food pantry at 100%. All gifts matter especially 

during this elevated time of need. 

Our thanks from FACES!

Our resources will likely be stretched in the coming weeks/months in ways we cannot anticipate at present. 

Donated Funds give FACES the flexibility to respond to unanticipated needs and purchase more food.  Use the DONATE button above or mail checks to the address below. FACES thanks you for sharing what you can.
