The Water's Edge Church "Bread of Life" Food Pantry is open every Tuesday from 1:30-4 P.M. Any person living in Virginia Beach is welcome to come and receive food once per month. We operate what is called a “Client’s Choice” food pantry. It is similar to a grocery store where the client actually shops for the items they or their family would desire to eat. This is a more efficient form of food distribution because if we pre-packaged the food, some would receive food they will not or cannot eat. This would likely result in food being thrown away. We do place limits on the number of items each family may receive.
“Then the King will say to those on his right, ‘Come, you who are blessed by my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me food…’” (Matthew 25:34-35a ESV)
***In accordance with federal law and U.S. Department of Agriculture policy, this Food Pantry is prohibited from discriminating on the basis of race, color, national origin, sex, age, or disability.
