Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank
2 year commitment
Food banks and food pantries play a key role in meeting the nutritional needs of low-income children and families, who have less access to nutritious, affordable foods and are disproportionately impacted by obesity and diet-related disease. Our food bank partners make sure that times of sacrifice don’t also mean sacrificing good health.
Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank will receive support from PHA to implement a comprehensive nutrition ranking system over the next two years. PHA will provide technical assistance to help Fredericksburg Regional Food Bank understand the nutritional quality of its inventory, enhancing food equity for the communities they serve.
