Powhatan Food Pantry






POWHATAN FOOD PANTRY

The Powhatan Food Pantry is located at 2500 Batterson Road, accessed through the St. John Neumann Catholic Church entrance.  It is operated by the volunteer efforts of the Coalition of Powhatan Churches.   The Powhatan Food Pantry is also a Partner Agency of the Central Virginia Food Bank, which is itself a member of Feeding America, the nation’s food bank network.   

The purpose of the Powhatan Food Pantry is to reduce food insecurity in Powhatan County by providing supplemental food to needy families who are residents of Powhatan County.  We also provide United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) food to households that meet USDA guidelines.   Our goal is for all Powhatan County residents to have access to enough safe and nutritious food for an active and healthy life, to be free of worry about where their next meals will come from, and to be relieved of the burden of choosing between eating and paying important bills such as rent, health care or utilities.   

Food is normally distributed Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday from 10am - noon.  The Powhatan Food Pantry is an equal opportunity provider.

To volunteer or for more information please e-mail jimtubbs25@gmail.com 

As this is a self-funded ministry, donations of food or money are always appreciated.  You can drop off donations at the Pantry during normal operating hours or at St. John Neumann Catholic Church between 8:00 a.m. and 4:00 p.m. Monday – Friday.  Checks should be written to St. John Neumann with “Powhatan Food Pantry” in the memo section.   You may also donate online by going to this link:
