In the past year the Northern Neck Food Bank has increased the amount of fresh produce distributed to clients from over 200,000 pounds to over 400,000 pounds.  We have expanded the Backpack Buddies Program in Lancaster County and increased the recipients from 70 to 95 mid-year.  We have implemented a Senior Program which serves clients over 60 that meet certain requirements to receive a second distribution each month.  
In the current year our main goal will be to secure a larger space as we have outgrown our current facility.  Fundraising for this will be a major focus in the coming year.  In addition, we will continue to improve and expand our Agricultural, Backpack and Senior programs as we identify additional needs in our region.  We will also explore the opportunity to partner with health care organizations and identify where the need may be for a Healthy Lifestyle program to educate and assist those recipients who struggle with obesity and related illness.
Volunteers to assist in all phases of our operation.
A new larger space as we have outgrown our current location. 1 million
Larger equipment for installation in a new space. $250,000.
Funding for the Backpack Buddy program expansion. $50,000.
Funding for additional program expansion. $50,000. 

The Northern Neck Food Bank began in the back of a pickup truck in 2008, assisting area pantries with the transport of food from Central Virginia Food Bank in Richmond to the Northern Neck.  In 2010 the Northern Neck Food Bank became a 501(c)3 organization and began officially working with Feed More/Central Virginia Food Bank as an RDO (Re-distribution Organization) representing the four counties of Lancaster, Northumberland, Richmond and Middlesex.

In 2012 the food bank surveyed over 5,000 clients and found that 32% of the households being served have a member with Type I or II diabetes. In response to this, the focus of the food bank immediately shifted to acquiring the most nutritious food available and we developed the Agricultural Program.

In 2014 we added the counties of Essex and Westmoreland/Colonial Beach to our distribution area.

Today we successfully run our core program, the agricultural program, backpack buddies in Lancaster, Middlesex and Richmond counties and a new senior program in Lancaster and Middlesex counties.

Central Virginia Foodbank Partner Agency2010

Our core program and basis of our operation consists of delivering food to pantries throughout our distribution area. In order to stretch our limited pantry budgets further we have chosen to make over 500 deliveries without additional costs to the pantries. We provide 40% produce, 40% non-perishable, 10% meat and 10% bakery/dairy food items which is equal to 20 pounds of food for each client.

Population Served Children Only (5 - 14 years)
Budget $125,500.00

The Agricultural Program our signature program at the Northern Neck Food Bank and directly impacts over 60,000 individuals annually who receive food from NNFB directly and through an extended distribution partnership with Feed More and Virginia Peninsula Food Bank. Hundreds of volunteers locally and throughout Virginia join the Northern Neck Food Bank by investing in our communities for gleaning activities from June through December of each year. We provide 40% fresh produce to clients in our service area and exceeded that amount to 45% in 2016. In the current year we have received over 400,000 pounds.

Budget $85,000.00

Through the Backpack Buddies program, Northern Neck Food Bank provides students six “child friendly” meals each Friday for the weekend in Richmond, Lancaster and Middlesex Counties. In March, 2017 we expanded this much needed program in Lancaster County to serve 70 children weekly at Lancaster Primary School and 25 children weekly at Lancaster Middle School. We currently serve 20 children weekly in Richmond County, 95 children in Lancaster County and 120 children in Middlesex County.

Budget $35,000.00

This is a new program for seniors 60 and above at 125% of the poverty level. Each month we provide one healthy food supplement to qualified residents in Lancaster and Middlesex Counties. Residents 60 and above receive this food in addition to any foods they receive under their local Food Pantry and U.S.D.A. programs.
