While food is always welcome at your Virginia food banks, money goes much further. Each food bank purchases food in bulk directly from distributors, which means at much lower costs than you can find in a grocery store. Therefore, for what you pay in the store for a can of soup, the food bank can get several cans of soup. We estimate that for every $1 donated, 4 lbs of food can be purchased.
