The mission of Greater Washington County Food Bank is to form lasting solutions to hunger insecurity through effective food distribution systems; to educate and empower the needy in seeking positive lifestyle changes; and, to create awareness through individual and community partnerships.
For over 35 years Greater Washington County Food Bank, a non-profit organization, has been providing groceries and nutritional information/education to food insecure residents of Washington County. It is estimated that Washington County currently has over 25,000 people who are food insecure. While we don't distribute food from our home office; we do distribute food through our network of 38 distribution sites (9 public and 29 senior living/CSFP locations) and 7 agencies located throughout the county. We also support several after school food programs that help ensure food insecure students have something to eat over the weekend. Currently over 30% of our recipients are children under the age of 18, and over 20% are seniors. We rely primarily on community support to meet these objectives in a caring and compassionate way.
