Feeding Southwest Virginia
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, Feeding Southwest Virginia, 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 and decreasing the amount of food and beverage with minimal nutritional value. It will incentivize the organizations it works with to select more nutritious food and implement changes that will create a culture of health for employees.
Feeding Southwest Virginia channels over $33 million worth of food and grocery related products through a network of 354 partner feeding programs in its 26-county, 9 city region that provide food or meals to those in need. PHA is proud to work with an organization making such a positive impact on hunger and nutrition for families in their community.
