On September 10th the Central Virginia Food Bank showed up in Southern Barton Heights with enough food to provide for 200 households in our community. Here is how it went:
Of the 200 vouchers handed out, 125 were handed in for food. In all, those with vouchers represented 239 adults, 152 children, and 58 seniors; accounting for 449 people total.
We are looking for more community involvement with this program, so anyone who wants to help organize, deal with vouchers, distribute the food day of etc. should get in touch.
The October Mobile Food Pantry will be on Saturday October 8th at 1pm. Many of the Wingnuts will be at the Richmond Zine Fest, so extra help would be lovely.
