Welcome to the Fauquier Community Food Bank and Thrift Store

If you need assistance, you have come to the right place. Our food bank provides USDA Commodities, Senior Commodity boxes, pantry services, some personal supplies, and firewood when available to registered clients in Fauquier County. During the month of February 2016 our food bank served 572 families which consisted of 455 children, 731 adults and 277 seniors. We are gearing up for our Easter project Hams for Seniors. This will be the 3rd year for this project and we hope to again make it a success. Our second annual Easter project in 2016 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.

Not only do we provide food, we also have information on the other Social Services in the county 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 of food 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.. 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.
