Welcome to the Fauquier Community Food Bank and Thrift Store

If you need assistance, you have come to the right place. USDA Commodities for the month of September, we served a total of 504 families which included 475 children, 198 senior citizens and 646 adults for a total of 1319 individuals helped. Non USDA services included 151 families consisting of 66 senior citizens, 155 children and 211 adults for a total of 334 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.

Here is what you need to know about our Food Bank.
We serve Fauquier County residents. Our hours are Monday thru Friday 12p.m. until 4 p.m. for client services. Donations are welcome Monday thru Friday from 9a.m. until 4:00p.m. If you live in another county, we can refer you to your local food bank.
You need:

  • Proof of Income
  • Proof of residency
  • Photo ID.(ID is needed for all family members)
  • Proof of Benefits (such as SNAP)

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.
