The efforts of Feeding America Southwest Virginia would not be possible without the generous support of the community. In 2013, our donors enabled us to alleviate hunger in the region by distributing 20 million pounds of food – the equivalent of 16 million meals. Because of our strong network of partners and affiliations, we are able to leverage EVERY DOLLAR donated to $12 worth of food value!
Hunger is an equal-opportunity problem. It doesn’t limit its impact to one demographic group, one cause, one type of neighborhood, or even a single season.
Your gift can be the key ingredient that will turn hunger into hope for people in need. You can make a very real difference to our hunger-relief efforts in Southwest Virginia. The need is huge; more than 375,000 neighbors in our region are food-insecure, which means they don’t know the source of their next meal. Over half of them are children. With your support, we can continue to help children grow strong in mind and body, bring security to families, and provide independence for seniors to continue to live in dignity and good health.
Every $1.00 you give equals $12
Your donation puts food on the tables of those who would otherwise go hungry. Our partner feeding programs provide food resources to an average of 125,000 people each month—nearly half of them children. Every dollar of your gift is leveraged though FASWVA to distribute $12 worth of food value to feed the hungry throughout our region. This equates to as many as six meals per dollar!
We distribute more than 20 million pounds of food annually through our partner agencies.
Feeding America is NOT a government program and relies on community support to help the hungry.
