Who We Are

Community Storehouse was founded in 2001 as a grassroots effort to feed & clothe impoverished families in Martinsville and Henry County, Virginia:  a community once known as the furniture and textile capital of the world, now best known for the highest unemployment rate in the state. 

Over a decade of service, Community Storehouse has become one of the largest influences on the fight against poverty and hunger in Southside Virginia, providing programs and services essential to the health and betterment of the community.

This organization exists to solicit, warehouse, and distribute food to community individuals living in impoverished conditions.  The organization reduces food waste by reclaiming food that would otherwise go to our landfills.  It also provides community leadership and education on issues related to food, nutrition, and hunger.
