Feeding America Southwest Virginia

LYNCHBURG, VIRGINIA (WSLS) - Feeding America Southwest Virginia gets a big check that'll help keep their shelves stocked.

The Roanoke Women's Foundation presented the food bank with a check for $50,000.

The money will go to start a food purchase program, allowing them to buy foods they can't get donated.

"We're able to target what we want to buy. We live off the generosity of our food partners, which are so great to us and we love them, but we live off the products they're able to give us, so we don't always have a consistent, nutritious food supply,” said Feeding America Southwest Virginia President, Pam Irvin.

Because they're able to purchase food at a discount, the $50,000 will allow them to buy about $290,000 in food.
