About FACES

General Statistics (from the 2009 annual report):
  • In the period from January 1, 2009 to December 31, 2009, FACES distributed 658,950 pounds of food.
  • This comes to about 12,700 pounds of food per week.
  • A total of 28,650 bags of food were distributed.
  • The average weekly distribution for 2009 was 716 bags.  This is a 5.1% increase from the previous year. 
  • The average number of families served per week was 482. 

Each bag unit includes:

  • cereal
  • pasta
  • crackers
  • canned goods
  • meat (as available)
  • produce (as available)
  • eggs (as available)
  • milk (as available)
  • juice (as available)
  • margarine (as available)
  • bakery items (as available)

Recently, we have obtained a truck, a fork lift, and a walk-in cooler.

The FACES truck, obtained through a grant from the Episcopal Diocese of Southern Virginia sponsored by Johns Memorial Church of Farmville, allows us to transport food for distribution, such as gleaned produce from the area and other food such as venison from Hunters for the Hungry.

 

The walk-in cooler was donated by the Farmville Rotary Club and allows FACES to give meat, eggs, produce, milk, margarine, juice, and other perishable foods!
