STOP Hunger Food Drive: A great success

On behalf of the University of Mary Washington Dining Services, Sodexo, I would like to thank everyone who supported our recent STOP Hunger Food Drive, helping us collect more than 3,500 pounds of food for the Fredericksburg Area Food Bank.

We especially want to thank the UMW athletes who partnered with us on this event, and who brought in more than two tons of food in donations, distributed collection bags in the campus neighborhoods, manned donation tables and helped transport and load hundreds of bags of food!

Many thanks also to the Giant Food Store in Eagle Village for allowing us to have collection baskets and donation tables at their location.

The STOP Hunger Food Drive is an event sponsored every November by the Sodexo Foundation, a non-profit organization dedicated to stopping hunger in our communities. This was the eighth year that UMW Dining Services has sponsored the drive, and we appreciate the wonderful support we have received from our Fredericksburg community. Thank you!

Rose Benedict
