BAB are a small organization that started in the spring of 2020. We began by delivering surplus bread from a local bakery to different immigrant families and elders during the lock-down resulting from the pandemic, and then expanded to delivering produce as well.
Breaking down borders and building bridges between different communities by sharing food
We collect surplus food from stores and redistribute to the working class communities of Charlottesville – mainly to immigrant communities (Middle Eastern, African, Latin American, but also to all low income members of the Charlottesville community, to elders and folks with disabilities.
Currently we meet every Sunday , rain or shine, to sort through donations. The sorting usually starts between 11:45 am and 12:00 pm and can go until 1:30pm or so. After items are sorted into boxes , we deliver the food directly to different families , who in turn distribute items to people on their blocks /in their communities.
We are part of the growing movement to reverse this situation! We can really use your help in turning this around in our own backyard-here in Charlottesville.
Please join us if you can, very informal & relaxed environment.
