Facilitating statewide collaboration among Virginia’s food banks, partners, and neighbors to improve nutrition security and empower strong, healthy communities.
A healthier, food secure Virginia
Together we will:
- Establish and enhance partnerships across the Commonwealth to leverage resources for multi-region initiatives.
- Build stronger working relationships with state government to align food bank resources with state-wide strategic priorities.
- Advocate for the protection and expansion of federal nutrition programs.
The Federation of Virginia Food Banks occasionally makes grants to or contracts with other nonprofit organizations, governmental agencies, educational institutions and its own members in support of initiatives designed to improve food security for Virginians. While recognizing that such parties incur both direct and indirect (facility and administrative) expenses when fulfilling the terms of grants and contracts, the Federation limits reimbursement for indirect expenses to a maximum of 15% of the total award or contract.
