Food Bank



“For I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me.” Matthew 25:35 ESV
The Virginia Watson Food Bank was established  as an outreach ministry of Fellowship Baptist Church to serve the residents of Meadowview and Glade Spring, VA. We are aware of the needs around us in our community and take serious the command of the Lord Jesus to minister to those in need.  We understand that some have ongoing needs and some just need a little help to get through some tough times.  Either way, it is our pleasure to serve you.  The Food Bank is open and serves our community on the first Tuesday of every month.  Qualified applicants receive a box of non-perishables, frozen items, bread, milk, and other food based upon the number of people in your household.  If you have any further question please contact the church office.
