 St. Bart's has supported LAMB's Basket Food Pantry for several years. Though we are not located in the Lakeside area, they are our neighbors. LAMB is an acronym for Lakeside Area Ministries Board.

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. An initiative was organized 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 501c3 non-profit organization. LAMB's basket provides food to needy families and Henrico County clients are referred by area churches and organizations such as Central Virginia food Bank, Catholic Charities, and Henrico County Social Services.
