About Us

Providing Hope

The Blue Ridge Area Food Bank exists for a few very simple reasons: Food sustains life. It restores options. It provides hope.

We are an emergency food assistance agency that serves more than 118,600 people each month, a near record in the Food Bank’s history. Last year, we distributed 20.6 million meals to hungry families across the Blue Ridge. We expect to serve even more this year.
