World Food Day 2015 Virginia

world-food-day-2015

On World Food Day, we want to take a moment to recognize some of the groups that are working hard to alleviate hunger in the communities we serve. We all know what it is like to be hungry at times, but few of us can imagine the experience of chronic hunger and food insecurity. We’d like to encourage all of our friends to organize a food drive, make a food donation, or provide support for their local food pantry.

For caring about those who need it most, we’d like to offer a big “Thank You” and encourage donations to these good neighbors:
