Field & Main's Community Commitment Initiative (CCI) represents the restaurant's commitment to support our community through various efforts aimed at developing, supporting, sustaining and promoting health and well-being in our region. Field & Main believes that it can leverage its resources and relationships for the benefit of the community. All those that support this restaurant are in effect contributing to making a broader impact on our region through efforts such as these:
Field & Main seeks to foster an appreciation for local food production by introducing students from area schools to the sourcing, preparing and serving of a meal for their family and friends. Students work with the Field & Main team to devise a menu, cost it out, source & process the ingredients, and prepare, serve and clean up the meal. All the proceeds from the meal will be donated to the school to support their educational missions.

FAUQUIER FOOD BANK: FOOD TRUCK
Each evening, Field & Main designates one menu item for which $1 per item ordered will be donated to support the Fauquier Food Bank's Food Truck. The menu item usually will be an item that is great for sharing. We invite you to purchase this item when you visit Field & Main to share at your table. In doing so, you will be contributing to the subsistence of our broader community.
The Fauquier Food Bank and Thrift Store have a food bank and thrift store in Warrenton. The proceeds from sales at the thrift store are used to support the food bank and all operations. At the food bank for every $1.00 in donations or profit they can purchase $4.00 worth of food to feed their clients who are food insecure. They serve aproximately 40 to 50 families per day Monday thru Friday. Families come in twice a month and with a volunteer's assistance they fill a shopping cart of assorted items to include meat, dairy, produce, deli, bakery, and dry grocery items that their family can use throughout the month. Families also receive basic recipes to use with new foods they may not have eaten and are taught how to properly store and preserve items. Expanding this mission, the FFB is working to get to the outer areas of the county such as Marshall, Orlean, Hume, Remington, and other points further from the county seat. Along wit a grant already received for this program, efforts are underway to determine the details of where and when the food truck services will begin.
