Eating Watermelon

Our Project

Areas where most residents cannot access affordable and nutritious food, “food deserts,” are a chronic problem in the Richmond region and threaten the long-term health of our community’s children. Food insecurity in childhood is associated with poor health outcomes and developmental, behavioral and school performance problems. Screening for food insecurity is becoming more common in primary care, but screening must be paired with resources.  


Proceeds from the Ball will help our team address food insecurity through screening and on-site food distribution in the Children’s Tower, as well as referrals to long-term resources with partner organizations like FeedMore and Underground Kitchen.

“It’s not about looking at a child as a snapshot, but instead as a movie over time. We are committed to addressing food insecurity—setting the stage for a child’s full lifespan by addressing social determinants of health in a comprehensive fashion.”

– Dr. Shari Barkin, Chair of the Department of Pediatrics and Physician-in-Chief of CHoR
