A big thank you to @rcrampage Rashaad Coward of the Chicago Bears for helping the Foodbank bring smiles and fill bellies today during our Spike Event! He personally distributed meals to children at one of our mobile pantries for the Summer Food Service Program, creating a memorable and joyful experience for our community’s hungry youth. We would also like to the Hampton Roads Youth Foundation @hryf757 for making this event possible. @nokidhungryva

A big THANK YOU goes out to our postal carriers and community for their support of the largest one-day national food drive Stamp Out Hunger. A total of 54,304 pounds was donated and picked up by our local postal carriers, delivering hope to our neighbors in need.

We would like to thank @VirginiaNaturalGas for awarding us a $2,500 grant to help purchase nutritious food for our BackPack Program. Children in need will have healthy meals to eat over the weekend thanks to this funding. Last week, Virginia Natural Gas employees also generously donated their time at one of our Mobile Food Pantry Program sites, making another difference in the lives of those struggling with hunger. Thank you for your support and for this wonderful partnership.

Food Lion donated 30,000 meals to Buckroe Baptist Church yesterday to restock the church’s food pantry in advance of their May 9th Grand Opening. This donation reflects its commitment to Hampton, signifying a fresh start to a new relationship between Food Lion and the Hampton community in the Buckroe/Phoebus area of the city. The effort also supports the grocer's pledge to provide 500 million meals by the end of 2020 through its #FoodLionFeeds hunger-relief platform. Feeding America

We were grateful to receive a MidAtlantic Farm Credit Grant that will help cover costs to rescue food that would have otherwise gone to waste. Our neighbors facing food insecurity need fresh produce in order to live a healthy lifestyle, and this grant will help rescue locally grown produce for them to enjoy. Thank you for this opportunity to distribute even more nutritious food into our community. Federation of Virginia Food Banks

Farm Credit of the Virginias has awarded us a very generous grant to cover the Pick and Pack Out costs as well as freight costs for rescuing produce items that risk going to waste at local farms and bringing them into the Foodbank for families in need to enjoy. Farm Credit of the Virginias provides essential support to rural areas and agricultural communities across the commonwealth, making a tremendous impact on farmers and the important work they do. The grant support they offer cultivates partnerships between local growers and food banks so that those facing food insecurity can access the nutritious fruits and vegetables required for a healthy lifestyle. Thank you for this opportunity to ensure that more produce reaches our neighbors across the Peninsula.

We are incredibly pleased to receive a grant from Colonial Farm Credit in order to help with the costs of rescuing fresh, nutrient-rich produce that might otherwise go to waste out in the field. Colonial Farm Credit is dedicated to keeping farming alive and ensuring that Virginia farmers have the financial support they need to do their important work. Our neighbors in need frequently request fresh fruits and vegetables from us, and we thank you for this grant that will empower us to provide more of these items to families in our community.
