We thank both Judy Walsh and the Commonwealth of Virginia for prioritizing Family Markets to feed the boys and girls in Northern Virginia where about 55,000 children live in food insecure households.
Fully one half of the 540,000 people served by the Capital Area Food Bank have high blood pressure or heart disease or are living with someone who does.
Our Urban Demonstration Garden has had another great week.
Most of the garden plants are currently ripe, but here are a few especially spectacular treats that are ready this week.
By recognizing partners who are committed to distributing healthy food and pairing it with nutrition resources, we will see a positive impact in the community.
This is a great week for harvesting in the garden, as there are beautiful vegetable blooms.
More of the summer produce is ripening in the Urban Demonstration Garden.
Plants are flourishing in the wet weather, and the resulting harvest is prolific.
At the Capital Area Food Bank, reducing food waste is part of our operational model and our organizational DNA.
While the rain may have put a damper on Independence Day plans for some, garden is thriving!
