Each participant will receive atoken of appreciation for supporting the fight against hunger. Attendees are asked to bring nonperishablefood items to be donated to the FoodBank of the Virginia Peninsula.Ã¢â‚¬Å“Our goal is to provide assistance to those who are unemployed, under-employed, or just victimsof the present economy, Scott said. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are talking about people who are having difficultymaking ends meet all year long.Ã¢â‚¬ÂBased on statistics which indicates that over half of the children in the City of Newport Newsreceive free or reduced lunch, it became obvious to the Food Drive Committee that the Holidaybreak creates a critical nutrition void. Students, out of school during the holidays, are least likelyto receive a well-balanced meal during this time frame.Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are grateful to all who have, from year to year, made this event a continuous success,Ã¢â‚¬Â Scottsaid. Ã¢â‚¬Å“We are especially grateful to our business sponsors who help us reach our targeted goal.Ã¢â‚¬ÂFor the past nine years, we have provided food to deserving families. In 2010, more than 650families received donations. Based on the number of people in each household, it equates toroughly 4,000 people from all races, creeds, ethnic origins and age groups. Most families alsoreceived a turkey to complete their holiday meal.Children who brought a donation had an opportunity to enter a drawing for a free bicycle.Winners were selected during the food distribution, which always occurs the Tuesday after theFood Drive.We are accepting registration for participants in this yearÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s event. Anyone who has talent andwould like to perform to Ã¢â‚¬Å“take a bite out of hunger,Ã¢â‚¬Â please contact Councilwoman Scott at 757969-8786.
