Farm Fresh Fund

At the Blue Ridge Area Food Bank, we’re making sure that fresh fruits and vegetables comprise an increasingly large portion of the vital food distributed in collaboration with our partners. This fresh approach is allowing us to distribute more produce every year through our network – now more than 6.2 million pounds a year, a tenfold increase since 2006.

Local Produce, Regional Impact

The Farm Fresh Fund makes it possible for us to support Virginia farmers and distribute even more homegrown foods to thousands of neighbors in need in communities across the Blue Ridge region. In 2016-17 the Food Bank was able to secure 490,129 pounds of Virginia-grown produce and distribute these nutrient rich foods to hungry families.
