During the government shutdown, calls to our Hunger Hotline from individuals who need emergency food assistance doubled. With more than 17,000 federal workers in the greater Richmond area, we knew that far too many of our neighbors needed a helping hand, but might not be sure how or where to get it.
Feed More to Hold Pop-Up Food Distribution for Neighbors Impacted by the Partial Government Shutdown
Feed More will hold a special food distribution from 2 – 4 p.m. on Friday, January 18 for those impacted by the partial government shutdown. The Pop-Up Distribution will take place on Feed More’s campus, in the parking lot of Building II at 1601 Rhoadmiller Street.
We are thrilled to report that 130,156 pounds of food was collected this past fall during the 2018 Scouting for Food! All of those amazing donations have been distributed throughout our many programs, and will go to help feed our neighbors in need in Central Virginia.
