Social Services

The Salvation Army Hampton Roads Area Command Social Services Food Pantry is located at 5525 Raby Rd. in Norfolk. Households can come once every calendar month to collect food packages. These packages include canned goods at a minimum, but also often include fresh produce, bread, bakery items and meat.

Portions given will depend on the amount of stock on hand and household size. The head of the household will need to bring a current government issued picture ID. Without a picture ID applicants are only eligible for USDA items.

Applicants should come prepared with the names, genders and ages of all household members as well as the amounts and sources of all household income. If it is their first time applying, they will also be asked to list basic household expenses such as rent/mortgage, utilities, phone and food costs.

For more information please call 757-965-9012 ext.2.
