Bless Cookies Community Network
Partners In Creating Healthier Lifestyles
Through Healthful Food Access
The scope of our mission continues to expand in assisting community neighbors with receiving, preparing, and consuming nutritious and healthful foods.
We partner with a base of likeminded community networks that share our passion to connect individuals, children, elderly, and their families with resources of food and education for healthful lifestyles. The Bless Cookies Community Network was incorporated as a Non Stock Corporation in August of 2020. We quickly began our "Operation Community Network" with organized efforts to get food items to people who were in need.
The services that we provide are fluid for adapting to the current needs of our community neighbors. We started out looking to help the most vulnerable - low income. We have found it also necessary to help those who may be temporarily struggling due to economic instabilities.
Families, individuals, and elderly are all part of the community members that we serve.
We currently serve around 400 families each month. Our service areas include Chesterfield, North Chesterfield, Richmond, Henrico, Petersburg, Chester, Colonial Heights and King William.
At the end of 2022 over 25,000 food items were delivered to our community neighbors through Bless Cookies
Education & Outreach
We lead with our mission - striving to combat the challenges our community faces with access to healthy food options.
Working with community partners, donors and volunteers enables us to connect with individuals in need throughout Greater Richmond and equip them with resources and knowledge to live a healthier life.
Our goal is to provide immediate nutritional options , while also equipping those we serve with the knowledge to maintain a healthy lifestyle.
At The Bless Cookies Community Network, we are dedicated to combatting issues of food insecurity and distribution.
Through collaboration and community empowerment, we are changing lives every single day.
We are always striving to make a difference, and invite you to learn more about how you can get involved and make a lasting impact in your community.
