Mission Statement

The Emergency Food Network is a volunteer organization that provides a 3-day food supply to individuals and families exclusively in the Charlottesville-Albemarle area who find themselves in an emergency without food.

Description

The Emergency Food Network is a nonprofit that has provided food for the needy since 1973. This year we celebrate 45 years of continuous service to the Charlottesville/Albemarle community. We provide a 3-day supply of balanced food, which includes staples as well as milk, cheese, margarine and bread. Our clients also may choose from a selection of fresh fruits and vegetables each day. We have no income requirements and do not submit our clients to an onerous list of questions; they simply register with us and then are eligible for food as frequently as once per month.

We have a working board of over 20 members, including an executive committee and specific job areas such as the purchase of food, volunteer coordinators, outreach, dietary specifications and record-keeping. We have over 100 volunteers, and just one employee, a part-time Office Manager.
