Apply For Federal & State Nutrition Assistance Programs
If you or someone you know needs food assistance, the Federation of Virginia Food Banks and our seven-member food banks can help to connect you with the food resources you need.
Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) helps boost your food budget and allows you to spend more at the grocery store. SNAP benefits are automatically loaded onto an Electronic Benefits Transfer card (EBT) to make food purchases at participating stores just like a debit card!
Special Supplemental Nutrition Program for Women, Infants & Children (WIC) is intended to improve the health of pregnant women, infants and children (under 5 years) through better nutrition and access to health care.
Child Nutrition: There are hundreds of sites across Virginia where children can eat at no cost outside of the school day.
