Fighting Hunger WithINN Virginia: Food and Fund Drive
InnVirginia has officially partnered with the Virginia Federation of Food Banks to combat hunger in communities statewide. The summer months are scarce for food banks as they rely heavily on springtime supplies that run thin as summer demands increase. Local contributions will benefit over 1 million Virginias in need. Throughout August InnVirginia members will supply food banks with vital supplies. Be sure to check with your local B&B to help “Fight hunger withINN Virginia” and see how simple donating can be. Virginia has a wealth of events to offer during the summertime. See what events are going on across the state!
