Struggling With Hunger In Or Near Farmville, Virginia? FACES Can Help.
FACES, the Farmville Area Community Emergency Services, distributes food weekly to over 900 households and over 1300 individuals. Distributions are carried out every Saturday from 8 AM to 10:30 AM from our warehouse at 314 North South Street, Farmville, Virginia. Clients must meet and provide proof of income for all household members. Income requirements are based upon 150% of the USDA poverty level.
FACES distributions are carried out every Saturday from 8:00AM–10:30 AM from our warehouse at 416 North South Street, Farmville, Virginia. Registration, including documentation of residence and financial need, is required and can be done on site.
FACES is an all-volunteer organization. We warmly welcome all who can help. Our major need for volunteers is on Thursday morning 9:00AM–12:00PM to receive and sort food; Thursday afternoon from 4:30-6 for bagging, and Saturday 8:00AM–10:30AM for distributions.
FACES is entirely dependent on donations from the public. We welcome donations of both food and money. Because we can purchase surplus food for 19 cents a pound, cash contributions purchase 5 to 10 times what they would at a retail store.
