Dunk Hunger Food Drive to Benefit Central Virginia Food Bank
Richmond, VA—For thousands of local families, summer brings fun in the pool – while for thousands of others, the same season brings the challenge of obtaining enough food to eat. This summer’s inaugural Dunk Hunger food-and-funds drive, sponsored by Richmond Family Magazine and the Virginia Swim Shop, benefits the Central Virginia Food Bank and runs June 1 through July 31.
As area swimmers compete for honors in the freestyle or crawl, they also can participate in a meaningful race to generate hunger relief in their community. The swim team or pool club that collects the largest overall donation by July 31, will enjoy a free celebratory party poolside in August. Swim-related organizations that want to dunk hunger can register at feedmore.org/dunkhunger, where full details and tips for a successful campaign are posted.
The Central Virginia Food Bank , a FeedMore organization, fights hunger in our region by providing food and grocery products to an extensive network of partner agencies who serve our most vulnerable neighbors. The Food Bank also prepares and delivers hot, healthy meals to at-risk children in summer/afterschool programs and BackPacks filled with weekend meal items for school children in need. These programs feed thousands people in 31 counties and 5 cities in Central Virginia. For more information, call 521-2500 or visit www.feedmore.org.
