Virginia First Lady Dorothy McAuliffe recently announced the Virginia Food Access Network (VFAN) website. This interactive tool is designed to accelerate efforts, connect partners, and share resources to end childhood hunger in Virginia and strengthen the local food system. Use this tool to find partnerships, locate food sites, find and share data, and access tools and resources to help in the fight against hunger in Virginia. There's even an interactive map to browse data layers, search for local data, or create custom PDFs.
