About Us

LAMB's Basket


Prior to 2002, many Lakeside area churches had small food pantries.  When the pantry at Christ Lutheran church began receiving referrals from Henrico County Social Services in 1999, demand quickly exceeded space.  Pastor Eric Moehring coordinated an initiative among Lakeside area churches to form a larger food pantry in order to meet the growing need more efficiently. 

After two years of planning and a generous grant from Overbrook Presbyterian Church, LAMB’s Basket opened in 2002 as a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization. The name is an acronym for Lakeside Area Ministries Board.


LAMB's Basket fights food insecurity by providing food to Henrico County Residents in need of food assistance.  Clients can be referred by area churches and organizations such as Feedmore, Catholic Charities, and Henrico County Social Services. Also, walk-ins are welcome.

During inclement weather, if Henrico County schools are closed, the pantry will be closed. Closing may occur for other reasons (excessive heat or lack of volunteers) without notice. If in doubt, call the office where a recorded message will give details.
