Fauquier Community Food Bank is a vital service to the Fauquier community, and Saint James’ has committed to providing a volunteer every Wednesday to staff the food bank and assist clients with choosing food.
You can help! There’s a signup sheet on the bulletin board up the stairs from the parish hall. Or, you can contact Sharon Michel.
The food bank is a dynamic program that can always use help from the community, and we hope Saint James’ parishioners will find a way to pitch in. Click here to learn more about Fauquier Community Food Bank and the ways you can help.

In 2012, the community food bank in Warrenton was slated to be closed.
The food bank helps with nutritional needs for residents of Fauquier County, with eligibility based on income. It serves about 650 households per month. Often the food bank is able to assist people who otherwise wouldn’t be eligible for government programs.
