Feed More is so excited to be a partner in the Red Nose Day campaign! This one-day event takes place on Thursday, May 23 and iss a fun way to raise money and increase awareness about children’s poverty in America and right here in Central Virginia. And this annual campaign has made a big impact on our hunger-fighting operations! Since the campaign launched in 2015, Red Nose Day has helped us distribute more than 160,000 meals to our neighbors in need!
The funds we receive from Red Nose Day will help Feed More ensure the one in seven children living in Central Virginia struggling with hunger every day have access to nutritious food. Through programs like our weekend BackPacks, Kids Cafe, School Market and Summer Food Service Program, which all serve children and teens under the age of 18, we’re able to help ensure our region’s kids and teens grow strong in mind and body.
If you’re interested in participating in Red Nose Day, please pick up your very own Red Nose at Walgreens, or tune into their special on NBC at 8 p.m. on Thursday, May 23.
