Community Partners

 

 

SEVA ATD is proud to partner with the Foodbank or Southeastern Virginia and Eastern Shore (FSEVA). At each of our monthly events we will be collecting food and donations for the FSEVA. Each month we will focus on a different food item need. Together we can make a difference in our community.


The Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia serves thousands of children in Southeastern Virginia and on the Eastern Shore through 325 Partner Agencies and programs, providing the vital nutrition that's so important to these growing minds and bodies. But they need our help to do this. Our gift does so much. In fact, for every $25 donated they are able to distribute more than $150 worth of food and grocery items! When you support the Foodbank, not only are you investing in the future of our children, you are investing in a more positive future for us all.

 

756 lbs of food collected since 2012!

The Foodbank:

  • Provides nutritious canned, boxed, fresh, frozen, and prepared food to over 400,000 individuals annually (18,000 of these on the Eastern Shore). This food is recovered and secured from restaurants, supermarkets, food distributors, the USDA, farmers, wholesalers, sportsmen, and through food and fund drives.
  • Assembles a full-course, nutritious meal for only $.36 – much less than the price of a postage stamp! In fact, for every $1.00 donation FSEVA receives, we can assemble and distribute up to $6.00 worth of groceries.
  • Distributes emergency food to over 325 partner agencies and programs including soup kitchens, faith-based food pantries, neighborhood centers, family crisis centers, and homeless shelters for adults and children. By accessing food from FSEVA rather than purchasing from commercial outlets, each of these partner agencies has expanded resources to advance their own missions.
  • Prides ourselves on the work of some amazing volunteers who contribute more than 2,300 hours monthly to advance our humanitarian mission. Our 4,395 volunteers give more than 28,400 hours annually!
  • Serves those who are hungry throughout the Foodbank’s 4,745-square-mile service area including the cities of Norfolk, Portsmouth, Chesapeake, Suffolk, Franklin and Virginia Beach as well as the counties of Southampton, Northampton, Sussex, Isle of Wight and Accomack. Even though the Foodbank is salvaging and distributing more food than ever before, census and poverty statistics clearly show that we are a long way from meeting the need. In order to meet this goal, we have instituted more programs to obtain additional food to reach more people.
