Those in need of some help with groceries still have two opportunities to access food pantries offered by the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank.
On Friday, July 22, there will be a drive-through food pantry held at Edward E. Drew, Jr. Middle School at 501 Cambridge Street om Fredericksburg. The times are from 11:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m.
Another drive-through food pantry will be held at Germanna Community College’s Locust Grove campus at 2130 Germanna Highway in Locust Grove on July 23. The hours are from 10 a.m. – noon.
At these events, you are not required to show any paperwork or identification in order to receive food.
There is not a strict limit on the number of times you can visit the food bank’s pantries within a week because you know the reality of your need better than anyone, but we would ask that you try to come out no more than twice in a week to be fair to others, Maxine Longo stated on the food bank’s Facebook page.
Meals for Kids
The Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank also offers a Grab 'n Go Summer Meals For Kids program that’s open to all children age 18 and under. Children don’t need to register or fill out any paperwork to receive food.
