Blue Ridge Area Food Bank

Commitment

Started on April 1, 2019
3 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.

Our partner, Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, commits to being a place where families in need can find nutritious choices. Over the next three years, it will encourage healthier eating among the families it serves by evaluating the nutritional quality of the food it distributes, decreasing the amount of food and beverages with minimal nutritional value. Understanding the importance of continued health and wellness, it promises to develop nutritional guidelines for the food it provides and promises to build a healthier culture by ensuring consistent access to nutrition expertise to guide in all of its decision making.

We are proud to work with an organization making such a positive impact on hunger and nutrition for more than 100,000 people each month across 25 counties and 8 cities on either side of the Blue Ridge mountains in Virginia.
