Founded in 1972, the Rockbridge Area Relief Association (RARA) is the largest not-for-profit organization alleviating hunger and addressing poverty in the Rockbridge area. Headquartered in Lexington, Virginia, the Food Pantry and Helpline serve Rockbridge County and the cities of Buena Vista and Lexington. RARA's mission is to aid Rockbridge area households in a time of emergency when help is needed to meet life's basic needs.
RARA is limiting the amount of people in our building to ensure the safety of staff, volunteers, and clients. Please do not volunteer if you are sick or have had known exposure to COVID in the last 2 weeks.
