Richmond, VA –Tough times are about to get a little tougher for state-funded services, as almost $4 billion in state spending has been cut out of the budget for the next two fiscal years.
Of that $4 billion, $800 million will be cut from healthcare funding resulting in less state spending on medicaid and academic hospitals like MCV.

RICHMOND, Va. – During an in-studio interview Rick Holzbach, the Central Virginia Foodbank’s Food Resource Manager, spoke about FeedMore, an umbrella organization for the Central Virginia Food Bank, Meals on Wheels Serving Central Virginia, and The Community Kitchen.
The three programs are responsible for providing free food services to three key demographics: children, families and seniors.
Although the food services are open to everyone, Holzbach says the majority of recipients are the working poor who work during the day but because of one reason or another, still can’t make enough to support themselves.
