River City Bread Basket food pantry opens in Waynesboro

WAYNESBORO — Some morning rain was replaced by sunshine as community members gathered Saturday for the ribbon cutting and grand opening of The River City Bread Basket, a customer-selectable food pantry. Although based in Waynesboro – located at 505 N. Winchester Avenue – River City will serve the communities of Waynesboro, Staunton and Augusta County.

“We put out a call and the village showed up,” Adrienne Young, executive director of the LIFEworks Project, the organization behind The River City Bread Basket, told attendees at the ribbon cutting. “I want you to know that you are a part of this.

The pantry will be stocked with nutritional essentials provided by the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank and Feeding America partners Walmart and Food Lion. The mission is to ensure that no one in the community goes to bed hungry.
