About the Pantry

The Rappahannock Food Pantry is a volunteer 501(c)(3) non-profit organization that assists Rappahannock residents who are in need of food or other related services. The Pantry opened its doors on June 2, 2009 in Washington, Virginia. On November 1, 2016, we moved to our present location at 11763 Lee Highway, Sperryville, Virginia.

Donated Food

Food for Shoppers

Since its inception, the Pantry has provided citizens in need with fresh fruits and vegetables, canned and non-perishable foods, meats, dairy, deli items, breads and bakery goods, frozen foods, pet food, baby formula and diapers, and various toiletries/personal care items. When the need arises, the Pantry also provides school supplies, blankets, coats, and other items. Please stop by at any time during hours of operation to drop off donations, sign up to volunteer, or to learn more about the Pantry from our manager, Mimi Forbes, and the rest of our dedicated volunteer staff.

The Rappahannock Pantry receives food donations from local donors as well as the US Department of Agriculture, regional supermarkets, and other retail outlets. The majority of produce is donated by Rappahannock farmers, orchardists, and gardeners. The Pantry also purchases food in bulk to keep our shelves filled.

The Pantry asks new clients for general information such as household size, income, other assistance received, and housing expenses. There are income limitations for the USDA food, but not for anything else. Feel free to call if you have questions.

The Pantry is open for shoppers on Tuesdays and Thursdays from noon until 4 pm and Saturdays from 10am to 2pm.

Donation drop-off hours are Tuesdays & Thursdays 9:00am to 11:30am and Saturdays 9am to 10am.

We are located at 11763 Lee Highway in Sperryville (on the right as you drive past the town of Sperryville heading towards the Park).
