Childhood hunger in Virginia

The Virginia Food Access Network (VFAN), an initiative sponsored by the Office of the First Lady of Virginia, is dedicated to connecting different partners and resources in order to solve childhood hunger and create nutritious food access for all Virginians. Since 2015, the CGA has worked with VFAN to create several interactive maps, published on their website, that display nutritional and health data and share the location of food banks, farmers markets, and other resources.

Learn about childhood hunger in Virginia through the partnered work of the CGA and Virginia Food Access Network on an informational StoryMap.
