- Our registration portal is a different than in previous years. You can register yourself and others. register online.

You can drop off the food between the hours of 10:00am through 3:00pm. Here is a link to the requested Food Pantry Items: SHOPPING LIST. Please share this list with others!

What is involved in a packing event? Here’s a pdf to explain: “Bird’s Eye View”
Last year we packed 50,000 meals. This year the meal we are packing is Red Beans & Rice. Each meal contains six servings. We give the nutritious dry meals to the Fauquier Food Bank, Clara’s House Food Pantry, Fauquier Fish’s Weekend Power Pack, and any other local organization that helps distribute meals to less-fortunate families. In 2015, the Fauquier Community Food Bank alone supported just over 5.5% of the county’s population.
The registration time slots are:
- 9:30am – 10:30am
- 11:00am – 12:00pm
- 1:00pm – 2:00pm
- 2:30pm – 3:30pm
This is a great event to bring your family to (even young kids can participate!), a team from work, get service hours, connect with other service-minded people from our community, hang out with a friend, and simply help meet a real need in our community. Anyone and everyone is welcome.
