I truly enjoy serving the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank in my current capacity. The mission of the Food Bank is to help our community and that's what the team does each and every day. I can't think of a better way to serve the community by partnering with the Food Bank to help with fundraising, donating needed items or donating money to help a family eat.

Ultimately I found the food bank to be a very rewarding experience overall. The community I was able to work with was very helpful, and I learned how to give to the community in a meaningful way. The food bank has taught me how to be a true member of the community in a very meaningful way. Even though the work may be small, I still realize that I am helping the community grow to be a better place by participating in the Food Bank. Through the food bank, I have learned how far small deeds can lead to big outcomes.

I have been volunteering with this organization for 3 years and love it! The staff is always so friendly, welcoming and helpful. The website is also user friendly and provides detailed information to learn about food insecurities. The Food Bank offers a variety of programs to provide food services to the community and surrounding areas. They are active and involved within the community. I am glad I have been able to build experiences by volunteering with the FRFB and able to help those in the community! I would recommend the FRFB to anyone needing assistance or volunteer opportunities!

FredFood is our family's charity of choice. While we have worked with and contributed to multiple causes over the years, we wanted to focus on what we thought was most important for the community. The choice was easy, as food is the most basic of needs. FredFood also has many different ways to help, in addition to monetary contributions. While the Fredericksburg Area is relatively affluent, the number of persons/families needing food assistance is very significant, and not well known to the general population. FredFood is the primary organization helping this "invisible population" meet their most basic needs.

I am continually amazed at the wonderful work done by the Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank. I have not received their services, but I volunteer with them occasionally and it is a great feeling to know that I am helping the food bank and, by extension, my community. Not only does the food bank provide food to those who are food insecure, but with many of their fundraising events, they bring members of the greater the community together for a good time.
