Richmond Christmas Mother Awards FeedMore $25,000 Grant to Provide Special Holiday Meals to Families
The Richmond Christmas Mother Fund announced that it has awarded a $25,000 grant to FeedMore, Central Virginia’s core hunger-relief organization, to provide meals to 2,000 families during the holiday season. The meals will be distributed to neighbors throughout greater Richmond next month through FeedMore’s Mobile Pantry, which takes nutritious meals to neighborhoods with limited access to healthy and affordable food.
FeedMore, Central Virginia’s core hunger-relief organization, announced that it was recently awarded a grant from the Morgan Stanley Foundation to support its fresh produce program. The funds will be used to increase FeedMore’s ability to access, transport and store fresh produce and provide fruits and vegetables for Central Virginians who struggle with hunger.
FeedMore announced that Central Virginia residents generated a total of $103,833.76 through Walmart’s “Fight Hunger. Spark Change.” campaign to fight hunger in Central Virginia. The nationwide campaign, which raised more than $19.8 million to support Feeding America and its network of food banks, encouraged people to take action against hunger and help families in need through simple acts of support online, in-store purchases and donations.
FeedMore’s Summer Food Service Program (SFSP) will once again be providing free breakfast and lunch meals to thousands of children and teens this summer across greater Richmond.
FeedMore today announced a $50,000 grant from the Morgan Stanley Foundation to fund its pilot School Pantry program in Prince Edward and Halifax counties, a child-hunger initiative that helps low-income families have a readily accessible source of healthy and nutritious food to prepare at home.
