CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, Va. (WRIC) — 8News is taking the lead along with Puritan Cleaners in the 100,000 meals campaign.
Hunger is a year-round issue. Nearly 200,000 children, families and seniors in our community are faced with the problem each and everyday.
Although the numbers are daunting, there is hope that comes from the support of Central Virginia, whose support makes a real impact on the lives of those who need it most.
Students at Providence Elementary School pitched in to help the cause. The kids have collected tons of food to help Feedmore.
“We made posters, we did segments on the morning announcements,” said Jacob, a student at Providence. “It was all a really big group effort to get all of the food and all of that. It makes me really happy to see how much food we gathered.”
It’s simple math: $1 equals five meals so a $10 donation is 50 meals — a great contribution for the hungry in Central Virginia.
