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