We understand that sometimes the month lasts longer than your paycheck and unexpected expenses can wreak havoc on the family budget. To make certain that no military family goes hungry the Patriots Pantry offers emergency food and baby supplies at our Regional Office in Virginia Beach. Our Mobile Patriots Pantry also serves Ft. Eustis and Ft. Langley every third Thursday of the month, to assist those families who may not be able to drive to our branch. Registration and valid military ID are required; to register click on the links above.
Patriot Pantry Hours: Monday, Wednesday, Friday 9:00am-5:00pm
We have updated our policies! Beginning September 1, 2023, we are asking patrons of Patriot’s Pantry to limit visits to twice a month in order to help us serve more military families. We are also limiting Pantry Staples to a 20lb limit per visit, there will be no weight restrictions with our fresh food and produce! Thank you for your patience and understanding while we work to help even more military families across Hampton Roads.
In an effort to reach even more military families, our Patriot Pantry now has wheels! Every Tuesday of the month, our Neighborhood Pantry will head out to various Liberty Military Housing Communities and set up a pantry for families to 'shop' from 11:00am-1:00pm! Food selection will depend on availability, and families will be assisted on a first-come, first-serve basis. Families must also be active-duty and present a valid military ID to take advantage of this programView Schedule Here!
