A canned food drive to benefit Feed More will be held in the Henrico Sports & Events Center starting Saturday, Feb. 10 through Friday, March 1, with free tickets to the upcoming Atlantic 10 Conference Women’s Basketball Championship for those who contribute.
Anyone who donates five canned food items, including peanut butter, pasta sauce, vegetables, soups and tuna during the drive at the center will receive two general admission tickets to the first or second round games of the Atlantic 10 Championship on Wednesday, March 6, or Thursday, March 7.
“Today, one in nine neighbors across the 34 cities and counties we serve struggle with hunger,” said Christy Dalton, Feed More’s community engagement manager. “These generous donations will help us meet the growing need for food assistance in our region and will help ensure that
our most vulnerable neighbors receive the nourishing meals they need to thrive.”
A maximum of two tickets will be provided for each five cans, which can be donated between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. each day of the food drive. Canned food items do not have to be packaged or stored in any specific way when brought to the center for donation.
