Welcome to the Fauquier Community Food Bank and Thrift Store

If you need assistance, you have come to the right place. For the month of February, we served a total of 377 families which included 341 children, 141 senior citizens and 490 adults for a total of 972 individuals helped. In addition to food items we have been able to provide firewood and some personal care items.

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.

If you are in the 55+ age category, you may also find the Senior Community Service Employment Program by the National Council on Aging an important resource. The NCOA has local programs and we will be glad to get you in touch with them.

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. 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.

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.
