Weekend Food Drive Collects Over 2 Tons of Food

Park Valley Church Hosts Food Drive

Park Valley Church Food Drive Volunteers

Haymarket Regional Food Pantry recently received an impressive food donation from a weekend food drive held by Park Valley Church.  They were able to collect over six truck loads of food!  The food weight totaled over 2 tons!

We are incredibly grateful and humbled by the outpouring of support in carrying out the mission.  Thank you, Park Valley Church, for your overwhelming generosity and for praying over the families that will be receiving this food.

The Church shared their request for donations on the Park Valley Church facebook page:

“With so many kids depending on the food pantry while school is out, they are running low on supplies.  We will be collecting non-perishable lunch items during our regular service times this weekend.”  ~ Park Valley Church Facebook Post, 2019 July.

The community response was outstanding!  Pictures are worth a thousand words…

…that’s not it…


…wait, there’s more….

The HRFP receives and gives out about 10,000 lbs of food each month. We receive food from many locations and all sources are greatly appreciated and very much needed.  As fast as it comes in, it quickly gets issued to families in need.  Our shelves do not stay stocked. We welcome donations from all sources.  Every donation, every drive — big or small — contributes to a successful mission in Helping Other People Eat in our community.

If you’re interested in donating or sponsoring a food drive, visit our Donate Food page for more info.

If you’d like to make a cash donation, you can find more information on our Donate Money page.

We could not maintain the mission without community support!
