How We Help
the Hispanic Community
Our Food Bank
Our Food Bank Program, the first culturally responsive of its kind, aims to overcome barriers of access experienced by the immigrant community in the Greater Richmond area. Prioritizing the values and traditions of the families we serve is paramount to the preservation of their cultural identity and what sets our food bank apart from others.
Our food distribution center located in Chesterfield is open to clients Tuesday to Saturday by appointment. First time registration may be done in person or by calling our hotline.
Once registered, clients may schedule an appointment once every two weeks to pick up a distribution of fresh produce, meat, and nonperishable foods. Families with infant children are eligible to receive diapers, wipes, and formula, based on availability.
The healthy living initiative aims to decrease health disparities and promote healthy living and wellness through education approaches while maintaining cultural tradition. Offering nutrition education, group fitness, and promoting health literacy through partnerships with the local department of health.
Workshops are offered at our Chesterfield office and through our virtual platforms
