Empowering Culpeper

Members of Healthy Culpeper have collaborated to form a USDA distribution program that provides food commodities (staples) for low-income families in Culpeper County. The distribution is held on the third Saturday of each month at Culpeper United Methodist Church (1233 Oaklawn Drive), from 9-11 a.m. The Culpeper Connector provides drop off and pick up transportation to the church. For transportation information, call:  540-829-5300.

Families that are income eligible will be enrolled to receive food commodities on a monthly basis. Households that receive Food Stamps or Medicaid or Supplemental Security Income (SSI) are automatically eligible. Registration is done on site only.  Please come early to allow ample time.

VOLUNTEERS are always needed for unloading, packaging, and distribution.  For more information on volunteering for the food distribution, please call Denise Walker at 540-727-0372 ext. 385, or email at dwalker@culpeperhumanservices.org

People, Incorporated is now the fiscal agent for Empowering Culpeper.
