FOOD DISTRIBUTION

Virginia’s Food Distribution program manages the distribution of U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) donated foods and administrative funds to approximately 500 public and private entities throughout Virginia. Recipients include Virginia's public and private schools, hospitals, nursing homes, soup kitchens, elderly nutritional programs, correctional facilities, summer programs and day care centers. Foods are also made available to food banks for distribution to Virginians in need.

This program proudly supports Virginia’s agriculture industry and markets Virginia products as well as USDA-donated foods to schools and institutional buyers. Contact the Food Distribution program if you have a product suitable for Virginia food service programs.

USDA Foods Ordered

Inbound USDA food shipments for Virginia schools are available via Web-Based Supply Chain Management (WBSCM).

USDA Commodity Processing

Virginia's Food Distribution program offers further processing for many USDA commodities such as cheese, fruits, meats and poultry. The option is offered to public schools as an alternative to receiving the products directly from USDA.
