#RVGives 2019 – What we’re doing to end hunger

“So what ARE you doing to end


The Community Solutions Center (CSC) is Feeding America Southwest Virginia’s latest innovative project focused on ending hunger by fighting the conditions that often underlie food insecurity.

The center produces hundreds of fresh meals per day to help children grow, provides quality culinary arts employment training and offers safe spaces for the Northwest Roanoke Community to gather.

Click the play button below to hear from one of the CSC Culinary Arts Program’s recent graduates about how it changed her life:

In addition to empowering community members to change their individual lives, the CSC has also played a role in improving neighborhood safety. Since the CSC opened, crime in the surrounding area has declined 80% percent. The center has also played host to roundtable discussions with law enforcement and others regarding ways to reduce gun crime and other safety issues.

Your gift during Roanoke Valley Gives Day ensures that the life and community-changing programs at the CSC continue to make a difference and ultimately, end hunger.
