We are open!
AND you can pick out your OWN food!!! Yippee!!!
Effective immediately, clients will park their cars, and then proceed to the Pantry entrance. Upon entry, clients will receive a number, temperature check, (mask still required) and fill out appropriate paperwork in the waiting area as needed. Once inside, clients must wait in the waiting area until their number is called, and then turn in their number at the registration table and proceed to the computer desk. Those who cannot wear a mask will not be allowed in the building, but can place an order outside.
We still need volunteers to help out during this crisis, specifically on our “substitute” list since we expect a higher number of regular volunteers unable to make it from day to day. Ages 16 and up. Please contact us by email or phone to let us know you are willing and able to help!
The Verona Community Food Pantry (VCFP) is 150+ volunteers drawn together by their commitment to provide food to those in need in Augusta County, Staunton, and Waynesboro, Virginia. We are an independent all-volunteer, 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.
Our mission at Verona Community Food Pantry (VCFP) is to help provide food to people who need it.
Who We Serve
2020 statistics show that we served an average of 1437 people per month. 307 were over 60, 412 were under 19, and 717 were 19 to 59. We distributed 1,171,070 pounds of food. The total cost of food distribution was $13,196.86.
A survey of those obtaining food from the Food Pantry indicated that the patrons appreciate the wonderful, friendly volunteers, the ability to select what they want instead of having food selected for them, and the generous allowances.
A general donation for purchasing food and general/administrative expenses is always a welcome gift. Please make checks payable to VCFP and send to Verona Community Food Pantry, P. O. Box 187, Verona, VA 24482.
