We are open!
Until May 3rd, clients drive up. They are greeted at their cars, given a list of foods available, check what they would like, and volunteers “shop inside” and bring the order to the car. (Please make sure you have room for the food in your car BEFORE you come)
EFFECTIVE MAY 3 – Things CHANGE
Starting Monday, May 3rd, clients will be able to enter the building to pick out their own food again. We are excited to offer this service but of course, must continue with certain restrictions. All clients will fill out NEW paperwork (be re-registered) no matter when they registered before or how long they have been coming. After they turn in the paperwork from their car, they will receive a number and wait their turn. We will not be able to allow more than four clients at a time into the building.
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.
