We need your help to make the holidays without hunger this giving season – Drive Thru Donations from November 19 – November 21
106.9 The Fox and FM99 proudly present the 25th Mayflower Marathon Holiday Food Drive to bring joy, happiness and nourishment to families across the greater Peninsula who are experiencing food insecurity. The Mayflower Marathon Holiday Food Drive, benefiting Virginia Peninsula Foodbank, will take place November 19th through November 21st.
The Mayflower Marathon is our largest holiday food drive and has helped put millions of meals on the table for families experiencing food insecurity over the last 24 years. Hunger can impact a home without any notice as we have seen with COVID-19. For those that were already facing hunger, their food insecurity has been magnified. New faces of food insecurity were reaching out for help. COVID-19 has impacted thousands of our neighbors, and they need your help now more than ever.
It isn’t easy to ask for help, but it is easy to give! This 57 ½ hour food drive makes giving easy – simply drive through and donate without getting out of your vehicles. Volunteers will be on site to collect your donation.
Your support will make a significant impact to help children, families, seniors and veterans who are missing meals and lacking the daily nourishment they need to live a healthier life.
Most needed items: Frozen Turkeys, Canned Meats (Tuna, Chicken, Spam), Hearty Meaty Soups, Instant Potatoes, Family-Size Box Rice, Spaghetti/Pasta Meals, Jelly, Canned Fruits and Vegetables, Gravy, Cereals, 100% Juice, canned beans (pinto, black, kidney, garbanzo), baby food and formula. Monetary donations go a long way. For every dollar donated, the Foodbank can provide the equivalent of four meals.
