There are a number of state-wide programs administered by the Federation.
Legal Food Frenzy: Each spring, lawyers, law firms, legal departments and law schools compete in a food and fund drive. The winning team is awarded the Attorney General Cup, while there are winners at each level of size and per capita poundage. This drive raises over 8 million pounds of food.
Governor’s Bowl Chamber of Commerce Challenge: This summer food and fund drive invites Virginia’s chambers of commerce and state government agencies to compete for one of four awards. Started in 2012, this food drive is expected to collect necessary food and funds to help stock the shelves during the most barren summer months.
Fresh Food for Virginians: This program brings fresh fruits and vegetables to the Virginia’s food-insecure individuals and families. Through private funding and grants, this program purchases produce from local farmers, enabling them to sell slightly blemished items rejected from grocery store chains, at significant savings to the food bank. Relationships with farmers and distributors through this program also lead to donations of grocery product.
