Random Acts of Flowers: Sweet Virginia Donates Flowers to Clients

Sweet Virginia Foundation, a honeybee conservation and education organization, is sharing nature's most colorful gift with our clients who could use a dose of cheer.

Every other week, Sweet Virginia donates beautiful flowers from their cutting garden in Northern Virginia to be delivered with our meals. Each delivery includes flowers ranging from bright yellow sunflowers to vibrant dahlias and zinnias.

Dan Price, executive director of Sweet Virginia Foundation, explains that flowers are a simple way to share love with people, even if they are complete strangers: "There is a lot of love that happens around bees and a flower garden. We didn't want these flowers to go to waste. So, when we thought about who would make the most use out of the flowers, we thought of people who are sick who may be dealing with a lot in their lives. Food & Friends was the perfect organization for this."

Thank you Sweet Virginia for your unique gifts to our clients. Check out some photos of these beautiful flowers below:
