The LAMB’s Basket (Lakeside Area Ministries Board) is a food pantry ministry providing food to Henrico County families in need. 

Client families are referred to us by area churches, Central Virginia Food Bank, Catholic Charities and Henrico County Social Services. LAMB’s Basket has been an integral part of the Lakeside community since 1999 when it had its origins in a small hall closet at Christ Lutheran Church.  Demand quickly exceeded space and supplies.  By 2002 Christ had partnered with other local churches to form the current 501 (c)(3) non -profit organization. This ministry now operates with its own independent board out of their own facility located at 8419 Oakview Ave., Henrico, VA 23228. Each of the participating churches provide volunteers two or three days a month to maintain daily operations.  Typical volunteer activities include receiving, sorting and stocking food and assisting our clients with food selection. If you are interested in participating in this important ministry, you may contact LAMB’s Basket directly at (804) 565-8007 or by email at
