Thanks to generous grants from the Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation and Sentara Healthcare & Optima Health, Feed More and VCU Health are working together to learn more about the social determinants of health – the situational and environmental factors that people grow up with, work and live in – and how those factors influence hunger.
The 2019 Richmond Christmas Mother April Niamtu joined Feed More to spread some holiday cheer at one of our Mobile Pantry distributions!
Feed More distributes nearly 30 million pounds of food each year, with a big portion of that being the deliveries our trucks make throughout Central Virginia. In one month alone, our fleet can deliver over 375,000 pounds of food to our network of nearly 300 agencies.
Thanks to Feed More, there are places our region’s kids and teens can turn to during the hungry days of summer!
Smithfield Foods donated more than 42,000 pounds of protein to Feed More as part of the company’s 2019 Helping Hungry Homes® donation tour!
