Chesterfield Food Bank
There are families in our shared communities that go to bed hungry every night. Chesterfield Food Bank exists to give a hand up, to those in need.
Their main clients are those who do not qualify for government assistance. This group includes the single mom working to try to put food on the table, the senior citizen surviving solely on social security, the veteran on disability, the young couple just starting out, and the person that just got laid off from their job. In cooperation with Local Social Services, they are locating and helping those families and individuals that would not have been helped, in the past. They strongly believe in the principle, "Give a man a fish and feed him today, teach a man to fish and feed him for a lifetime."
Currently, in Chesterfield, they serve 1800 people a week through their many programs and distributions. They are excited to be moving towards not only serving Chesterfield but surrounding counties. Learn how you can help support them at the show.
The Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation
The Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation (VBCF) was founded because no other organization existed in Virginia that was devoted solely to representing the needs of individuals affected by breast cancer and their families. In February 1991, five women met in a support group. Stunned by the lack of research and progress in breast cancer treatment, they planned a Mother’s Day Rally at the State Capitol to bring attention to this devastating disease. The seeds of VBCF were sown that day. Today, VBCF’s small staff is headquartered in Richmond and with the help of volunteers, provide Virginians with accurate, up-to-date information on breast cancer early detection, diagnosis, treatment, research, legislation, survivorship, caregiving, and end-of-life care. VBCF's goals are to establish the end of breast cancer as a state and national priority, to advocate for the collective needs of people affected by breast cancer, and to educate all Virginians on the facts about breast cancer.
The backbone of VBCF's advocacy work is monitoring state and national policies and legislation to provide advocates with the information they need to take action through the VBCF “Advocacy Alert” system. VBCF also organizes and hosts visits for volunteer advocates to meet with their legislators. In order to educate more people about breast cancer, VBCF staff and volunteer educational experts are available by request to present information on breast health and cancer and to host resource tables at community events across the state, like the Southern Women's Show!
