Feed More collects, prepares and distributes food to neighbors in need. With a service area that stretches across 34 counties and cities, our comprehensive programs and Agency Network are dedicated to providing neighbors who face hunger with one of the most basic necessities: nourishment.
We have had a presence in Central Virginia for close to five decades. Meals on Wheels was established in 1967, where it served just eight clients, and the Central Virginia Food Bank has been in operation since 1980. The Central Virginia Food Bank was created by 60 local churches and charities that were concerned about growing hunger and poverty in the region.
In 2005, the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels came together to build a joint kitchen, named the Community Kitchen, to cost effectively create cooked-from-scratch meals for neighbors in need across Central Virginia. This led to the formal merger of the Central Virginia Food Bank and Meals on Wheels and on July 1, 2008 Feed More was born.
With nearly 100 employees, close to 300 agencies and more than 200 volunteers a day, Feed More is able to carry out its mission of fighting hunger throughout its vast service area in Central Virginia. Feed More is a proud member of Feeding America and Meals on Wheels America.
