Many thanks to Kroger and Kraft Heinz for launching the Student Food Co-Op in fall 2019, in conjunction with the Virginia Western Community College Educational Foundation.
Quick Meal Cards
Thanks to an Anthem Blue Cross and Blue Shield Foundation Hunger Relief Micro-Grant award in 2021, Virginia Western was able to create Co-Op Quick Meal Cards to help students make easy and nutritious meals from items available in our food pantry. The recipes on the cards were created or selected for us by Registered Dietitians, and provide students with interesting options for using shelf-stable items in various recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, or snacks. Recipes will be rotated throughout the year.
