Governor Terry McAuliffe is expected to speak in Charlottesville on Monday, announcing the Agriculture & Forestry Industries Development fund grant (AFID), which will be awarded to Relay Foods.
According to an email sent out to city council members by the Charlottesville Economic Development Authority (CEDA), Relay Foods, whose headquarters is in Charlottesville, plans on adding 25 additional employees to their business as well as invest over $700,000 over the next three years.
This is all thanks to the AFID grant by Gov. McAuliffe, which is also being matched by the CEDA. The amount for the grant has not yet been released.
Relay foods started in Charlottesville back in 2007 and now has over 60 employees who deliver groceries all around Virginia.
The announcement is scheduled for noon on Monday, June 30th at Relay Foods’ headquarters off of Carlton Avenue in Charlottesville.
