If you need assistance, you have come to the right place. USDA Commodities for the month of March, we served a total of 475 families which included 633 children, 191 senior citizens and 405 adults for a total of 1229 individuals helped. Non USDA services included 167 families consisting of 79 senior citizens, 224 children and 143 adults for a total of 446 individuals. This year for our annual Thanksgiving Project we were able to serve 907 families to include 936 children, 1265 adults and 325 seniors for a total of 2,526 people. Our second annual Easter project for seniors was a success this year we served 150 families that included 129 seniors, 48 children, and 122 adults for a total of 299 individuals. In addition to food items we have been able to provide firewood,personal care items, and diapers.
Not only do we provide food, we also have information on the other Social Services in the county and firewood and we will help you get connected. You can also learn more about Community Services available in Fauquier County through the Fauquier County Resource Guide.

- Proof of Income
- Proof of residency
- Photo ID.(ID is needed for all family members)
- Proof of Benefits (such as SNAP.. only if your family receives benefits)
NOTE: We serve our clients based on income and your family does not need
to receive public assistance to come to the Food Bank.
You can pick up food twice per month (USDA commodities are only served once a month). Bread and produce can be picked up daily when available. A volunteer will assist you in choosing food.
If you need help feeding your family on a limited budget, the book “Feed Your Family of Four for $4 a Day” can help. You will find recipes, menu plans, shopping lists, shopping and cooking strategies, and more. Buy it at our Thrift Store and the proceeds support the Food Bank.
We are located at 249 East Shirley Avenue in Warrenton. This is the road which goes past Wal-mart. We are near Taylor Middle School between Warrenton Auto Services and Highline Motors. If requested, the Circuit Rider bus will stop at our front gate.
