Feed RVA is a nonprofit organization formed to facilitate the education of communities in the Richmond region on the importance of food systems, healthy/lifelong nutritional habits, and accessibility to quality food.
FeedRVA’s mission is “to foster Food Justice in the Richmond/Tri-Cities area.” FeedRVA defines “Food Justice” as “communities exercising their right to grow, sell, buy, and eat healthy food.” The immediate goal of FeedRVA is creation of a matching funds system for farmers markets that utilize SNAP/EBT. This program will also encourage markets not accepting SNAP at this time to work with the Virginia Department of Social Services, to utilize available technology grant dollars, and to offer the SNAP program at their markets. FeedRVA funds will be used to promote on-sight and traveling food education programs to highlight practical recipes and healthy meal preparation.
