Norfolk, VA – December 9, 2022 – As inflation continues to put pressure on food-insecure families, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore and Virginia Department of Human Services will hold its next drive-thru distribution at the Veterans United Home Loans Amphitheater on Tuesday, December 13 from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

Funded by City Council through American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds, it is open to all Virginia Beach residents on a first come, first serve basis who will receive approximately 60 pounds of fresh and shelf-stable foods. In addition, the first 100 households will receive a $100 gift card from Granny’s Christmas Trees, located at 1279 N. Great Neck Road in Virginia Beach. Cards can be redeemed for trees or a selection of wreaths, jellies, jams, and salsas.

About the Foodbank

For more than 40 years, the Foodbank of Southeastern Virginia and the Eastern Shore has provided over 350 million meals to those in our community who face hunger. Through our programs, facilities, and large network of community partners, we “eliminate hunger” on a daily basis for many. However, we understand that our current work addresses hunger for individuals in the short term. It does not address the root causes which force individuals to return to a food pantry again and again. This understanding has led to the creation of a strategic plan aimed to move Hampton Roads closer to achieving the mission of eliminating hunger for those we serve—not only for the day, or for the week, but for a lifetime.
