Updates on food distribution, meal delivery, and grocery services
 
While the health of our neighbors remains our top priority, we know that hunger doesn’t self-quarantine. The Rockbridge Hunger Coalition remains committed to continuing to offer as many programs as possible in the coming weeks, and are coordinating with our partners, both local and regional, to make sure that all programming runs as effectively as possible. As we do this, we are listening to public health experts to make sure we conduct our operations as safely as we can.
