As a local sponsor of Hunger Action Month, PRA Group is partnering with the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore in support of the Foodbank’s Mobile Pantry Program. PRA Group employees will be distributing food to customers in Portsmouth today and will present a $25,000 check to support the program’s outreach. It is estimated that thousands of meals will be provided to families facing hunger in Portsmouth through this distribution.
There are many areas in our region that do not have a feeding agency within a reachable distance to residents. Mobile Pantries allow the Foodbank to serve these areas and provide food assistance to food insecure members of the community. Last year, more than 1,000,000 meals were distributed through this program.
