Meridian Waste
40 Yards To Feed The Community

According to FeedingAmerica.Org, due to the novel coronavirus (COVID-19), food insecurity will continue to rise across the nation. In Montgomery County, Va., food insecurity is projected to rise by 4.7% compared to 2018 meaning 15.3% of our neighbors do not have enough to eat.

Meridian Waste is committed to collecting 23,000 lbs of food for The Agape Center NRV (New River Valley). This equates to approximately 19,000 meals, enough to fill one of our 40-yard roll-off containers!

Agape Center NVR is part of a larger network of Agape Centers in Virginia. The first Agape Center was formed in Moneta, VA in 2002. They have grown from a simple food pantry and clothing closet to a large multifaceted ministry that serves upwards of 3,000 individuals each month.
