Far-Reaching Significance: The FeedMore Story

In 2014, FeedMore served 19.6 million meals – up 78% from 2008. This means that fewer individuals have to make hard choices between buying healthy food for their families and paying their rent or medical bills. As the primary hunger relief organization in our region, FeedMore is committed to providing more food to more people in more communities.

Since the merger of Central Virginia Foodbank and Meals on Wheels in 2008, FeedMore continues on a path of accessibility, innovation, growth and sustainability. New programs meet people where they are. The BackPack program offers weekend meals to children in 56 schools, while the Mobile Food Pantry takes food directly to neighborhoods of high need. Collaboration is also at the forefront. Partnerships with local farmers and nonprofits like Shalom Farms are helping increase distribution of fresh, locally grown produce, while other collaborations are forming to address systemic problems that lead to food insecurity. TCF is a long-standing supporter of FeedMore’s efforts to provide hunger solutions and we look forward to what is next.
