To apply for free food assistance, simply come by our main office at 147 Resource Lane. Bring proof of your income and your Louisa County residency so that we can determine your eligibility for one of these programs:
Community Cupboard provides monthly allotments of food at no charge to income-eligible Louisa County residents. Basic staples, like canned fruit, vegetables, peanut butter, and protein-rich beans are supplemented with fresh meats, produce, and dairy so that clients can create their own nutritious meals.
Grocery Assistance Program
Grocery Assistance Program (GAP) is a monthly allotment of food to families who have incomes above federal poverty levels but who struggle to afford enough healthy food for themselves and their families.
Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels partners with the Central Virginia Food Bank to provide healthy home-delivered meals and a friendly security check to eligible homebound neighbors.
Emergency Food Pantry
Emergency Food Pantry provides a week’s worth of groceries to those faced with an unexpected crisis, such as job loss or medical emergencies. Families may receive an emergency food supply two times during a six-month period.
Children’s Emergency Feeding Program
Children’s Emergency Feeding Program in partnership with Louisa County Public Schools, assists children who are at risk of hunger when schools are not in session. On weekends, over holidays, and during the summer, kid-friendly food is distributed to children who, otherwise, would not get enough to eat.
60-Plus Food provides an extra box of healthy food each month to low-income residents age 60 and older.
