26th Mayflower Marathon Holiday Food Drive

November 18, 2022 @ 7:00 am - November 20, 2022 @ 3:00 pm

- Free

Now more than ever, we need your help to make the holidays hunger-free this giving season.
106.9 The Fox and FM99 proudly present the 26th Mayflower Marathon Holiday Food Drive, presented by Bud’s Plumbing, Heating, Air Conditioning and Electric, and hosted by Kroger in partnership with Coliseum Central to bring joy, happiness and nourishment to families across the greater Peninsula who are experiencing food insecurity.
For so many of our neighbors, the high cost of food and other essentials means there will be no big holiday meal to look forward to. Families are having to make impossible choices between food and other crucial needs, such as electricity, childcare, or medicine. Nobody should be forced to make a choice to go hungry. With the community’s support, we can come together to help people achieve long-term food security, so they no longer have to make such tough decisions.
The Mayflower Marathon Holiday Food Drive, benefiting Virginia Peninsula Foodbank, will take place November 18th through November 20th at the following locations:

Kroger, 5007 Victory Blvd, Tabb
Friday and Saturday 7am to 7pm, Sunday 7am to 3pm

Kroger 1050 W. Mercury Blvd (Riverpoint Shopping Center) Hampton
Friday 530am around the clock until Sunday 3pm

It isn’t easy to ask for help, but it is easy to give! During this 57 ½ hour food drive makes giving easy – simply drive through and donate without getting out of your vehicles. Your support will make a significant impact to help children, families, seniors and veterans who are struggling with hunger.

Most Needed Items
Frozen Turkeys, Canned Fruits (low sugar) and Vegetables (low salt), Canned Beans, Instant Potatoes, Family Size Box/Bag Rice, Macaroni and Cheese, Hearty Meaty Soups, Instant Potatoes, Gravy, Cereals, 100% juice, Box Dinners, Spaghetti/Pasta Meals, Hot and Cold Cereals, Oatmeal, Canned Meats (Chicken, Tuna, Salmon, Corned Beef) Peanut Butter, Jelly, Condiments, 1% Stable Shelf Milk, Baby Formula and Baby Food, and monetary donations. For every dollar donated, the Foodbank can provide three meals.
